On my machine, the GUID part of the ifname (which is formatted as
\\DEvICE\TCPIP_$GUID on my Windows 7 system) corresponds to the
interface with the that GUID in the "SettingID" property of the "wmic
nicconfig show" spew.

I've never used wmic before, so I don't know how to get the nicconfig
subcommand to only emit the information for a single interface, but
maybe you do?
