Is there anyway that I can have multiple profiles with my 802.11b wirless?

My office environment requires WEP to be used but when I go to Starbucks, I need to disable this WEP requirement?

Is there a way that I can have multiple setups?  1 for Starbucks and 1 for work using WEP without having to understand how to make this setups each time I move around?

Thank you

If this is XP....

Yea Windows zero configuration should store all the networks and their appropriate settings under the "Wireless Networks" tab of the wireless card. It is limited so you migth be able to find the actual utility some card manufacturers produce as a backup to the Windows utility. For example, Linksys, Intel, Cisco and 3COM all have additional wireless config utilities that allow for profiles for various locations that can be used instead of the builtin wireless utility in XP for example.

The answer is very vague.
