DHCP versus Static IP address login

By rupertcphelps ·
Is there a utility that will allow a configuration change between a static IP and DHCP IP address at login? My company uses static IP addresses. When I go to a client that uses DHCP (or home), I need to switch. I would like to do this at login and save twenty minutes of setting changes and rebootings.

I think the best answer is a program called NetSwitcher (www.netswitcher.com). There is a new version out and it's very reasonably priced shareware (around $9 USD).

I'm not sure about Windows NT 4, but Windows 2000 includes netsh.exe, which allows such changes to be made via the command line; it can be used interactively or in batch mode. Also, it may be possible to make the change and not have to reboot (if I remember rightly, going from DHCP to static requires a reboot, but vice-versa does not; I could have that backwards)
