Where to find DNS settings in image

Hi guys

i have a backup image of my C:\ with everything saved and i need to access the DNS settings ive got saved on my NIC, updating NIC drivers tends to revert settings back to default.
i am able to mount the image and browse through it like a normal HDD.
is there a place/file where the NIC saves the DNS settings i can access?

The DNS settings are stored in the registry but you won't be able to see them without an off line registry editor. I have no experience with such.
