Hello,

I use my XP laptop to connect to my work's wireless network, but I also have a wireless network at home.

When I switch from one network to the other I have to change various options (like ip, gateway, dns etc) in the wireless network properties. Is there an easy way of setting up and easily changing between the two configurations?

Thanks,
Phil

use DHCP for both wireless networks, change the lease duration to less than 1 day.

hi bbao. already tried that but due to differing network configurations I need to be able to specify various details (in particular dns details for net access).

DHCP options support various details, such as DNS server addresses.

DHCP is the way to go. Sometimes this isn't possible/practical

If so, try This:

I use this to change IP for checking remote access accounts via an external LAN which does not have DHCP for security reasons. This works on 2k/xp .
