I switch places which have different LAN configurations. What I normally do is boot the laptop, go to Network Properties and change the IP, submask, and/or DNS if necessary... and reboot so that the changes take effect.
Now, is there an easier way to do this? When I get to those usual places I already know the config, but how can I choose it before booting completely into Win (BTW, its 98SE)?? Or change all without the need of rebooting?? Or is there a possible Boot menu possibility that will let me choose whci Net setting to load?
