Hi,

I have a notebook with win2000 installed.

How can I change the network setting for each user loging on to the notebook/network ?

for example:
in my office I need a static ip.
at home I need another static ip.
when visiting my different clients I need to use DHCP.

I want to create different users, and while logging on change the network setting for each user.

   

    Toda.

>>just setup multiple hardware profiles.

You don't want to do it this way unless you want to use a different network card for every location.  And with Windows 2000, you don't even need to use hardware profiles.  Win2000 knows if your network card is installed or not.   But having a different card for every location gets expensive and confusing...

A helpful suggestion has already been posted.  Have you tried it?

Who said anything about needing to reboot?

You said you were using Windows 2000, right?  No reboot is needed when changing the network settings.
