Switching between Network Profiles

By qmark88 ·
Hi there,

Wondering if anyone has heard of, or uses, a utility that allows a user to switch their TCP/IP settings easily? I've found a few but they're all shareware and the user really can't justify spending any money on this. Are there any freeware options out there? I know they're not expense but they'd rather constantly put calls through for help than spend that little bit!

Thanks in advance!

use the microsoft netsh command. You can even write a batch file or vbscript it if you like.

basically "netsh -c interface dump > c:\location1.txt" will dump your ip config to a file and "netsh -f c:\location1.txt" will call them back. This works with WinXP and 2K, as well as XP, afaik. It can bypass those delightful policies that our system administrators like to set (like the one that forbids me from accessing the control panel > network settings dialog box)
