different network profiles.. how??

Posted: 01-31-2004, 09:39 PM
How can I create different network profiles? My laptop has a configuration
in the office for the network and internet. When I travel on a business a
trip and want to connect to the internet in a hotel, I have to change all
the DNS settings and other network/internet values. After I go back to the
office, I have to change them to the original settings yet again.

How can I change back and fourth automatically/easily between different
network profiles and settings? Any help is appreciated.. thanks a lot!

Ahmed;
Create another Hardware Profile.

Help and Support | Search: network connections

[[If you disconnect your local area connection, the connection is no longer
automatically activated. Because your hardware profile remembers this, it
accommodates your location-based needs as a mobile user. For example, if you
travel to a remote sales office and use a separate hardware profile for that
location that does not enable your local area connection on your home
network, you do not waste time waiting for your network adapter to time out.
The adapter does not even try to connect.]]
