Multiple Network Connections

By mike.goodchild ·
I have a Windows 98 laptop user who sits on out NT network. For various reasons the network setup is using a static TCPIP address and a default gateway is entered. However, this user needs to visit another site and wants to connect to their network(completely seperate). Again it is a NT network but this time they use DHCP to provide TCPIP addresses. Also the Domain names are very different. Is there a way that I can set up both domains on his laptop in order that he does not have to change the network settings in the control panel every time he visits the other site. I guess that with another network card in his machine we could overcome the TCPIP addressing issue but what about the Domain issue?

I have had similar issues with non-technical managers. You use the same technique that you would setup for a docking station. You give them a completely unique startup when they power on and just let them choose. I usually give each startup a simplename.

I like the first answer but just as an alternative, there is a very inexpensive program called Netswitcher (www.netswitcher.com) that can quickly change network settings. I've used it for a notebook computer that was used to log into various customer sites during the course of a day.

Might be something to check out.

Netswitcher is the best idea for this unless you're going to with a 2nd PC Card for this one particular site.
