Setting internet proxy setting

Hi,
I want to a code that will enable me to change the proxy setting of my IE from a vb code. Since I use my laptop at home and at school, I am getting tired of changing the proxy setting and releasing and renewing my IP (through winipcfg) all the time I change places
What I need is:
-A vb code that accepts a command line parameter (that is the name of the proxy server) and sets it as a proxy server (I think this can be done using wininet.dll functions)

-Release and renew the ip address (I think this can be done by using winipcfg /release_all and winipcfg /renew )

So that I can put this program (after making it an exe) as a startup program and I don't have to change anything.

I would really appreciate it if someone gives me a fully working code.(IF it is complete and I don't have to change anything,  I promise to add additional 50 points, cross my heart)


Thanks

Hi

Sub Main()
  Dim WshShell As Object
  Dim sCmd As String
  sCmd = Command$
  Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
  WshShell.RegWrite "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\ProxyServer", sCmd
'No need to use release_all, renew_all should be enough
  WshShell.Run "%windir%\winipcfg /renew_all", 0
  t = Timer
  While t + 1 > Timer
  Wend
  SendKeys "{Enter}", True
  Set WshShell = Nothing
End Sub

'Compile this and call:
Project1.exe ProxyName:Port
'For example:
Project1.exe 192.168.0.5:8080
'or
Project1.exe seagate:80

As I promised, I have increased the points to 250. I have modified it a little an now I have a program that I can run like
ProxySet ip1 proxy1 ip2 proxy2 .....
so that when I change your laptop from place to place I have to set nothing (currently I use my laptop at home and school)

Thank you
