Multiple network profiles on a laptop?

By RobertD. ·
One of our sales rep's uses his laptop at the office, and at another location. Is it possible to assign/create two different network profiles so that he can easily log on to the two different networks using the same laptop?

I believe that you can assign different network properties with different NICs. This only counts for TCP/ip settings not domains to connect to.
Configure the Hardware profile according to which NIC you want to use.

Create a Hardware Profile for each network setting. Login to the first network using the appropriate hardware profile and set the network settings to what they need to be. This will save those settings for that profile. Connect to the second network with the second hardware profile and make the necessary changes. Now depending on which network the user wants to log on to, he just selects the appropriate hardware profile.
