Changing network settings when loogged in as a user but with Administrator login details known

Hey All,
Is it possible to change the network settings eg ip address, gateway etc when logged in as a user.  I have the administrator login details but all my applications and settings are done in my user account.  Due to doing some testing with a network emulator I have to keep changing my network settings and I would like to be able to do it without having to log out and log in everytime.
All other administrator restricted programs etc I can run by using 'run as' but I can't get this option when I right click on the LAN device.
Thanks
Stef

You can use netsh

create a script like ip.cmd with the following content:

@echo off
@echo Changing to Static IP address 192.168.0.65

netsh interface ip set address "LAN" static 192.168.0.65 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.1 1
netsh interface ip set dns "LAN" static 192.168.0.3

@echo System Switched to static IP 192.168.0.65

Where "LAN" is the name of your Local Area Connection

Can't you just add this user to the Administrators group of the local pc?

For security reason I have my user account as just that a user account.  When I need to run a restricted program I just use the 'run as' option and if possible I would like to continue using this approach,
Thanks for the comment though
