Windows 7: Manage wireless connections for 7 HP x64?

Manage wireless connections for 7 HP x64?

Hi folks.

I have a laptop which I use at home and occasionally bring to a library. At the library I need to change the IPv4 adapter settings to use certain fixed IP address, gateway, DNS, etc. At home I clear those and set them back to automatic.

Is there any wireless connection profile manager for Windows 7 Home Premium? It's tedious to have to open up and edit the adapter settings every single time I switch between these two networks. I understand my manufacturer (Lenovo) has a software suite for this but it's for Windows 7 Pro/Ulti setups. I suppose they didn't figure Home Premium users would need to handle multiple wireless connections.

Anyone else juggling different wireless networks who can recommend something? Thanks.

No need to do that. Just use the wireless connection manager to set up each connection with it's own settings. Go to the Network and Sharing Center, look to the left and choose "manage wireless connections". You can set up different connections using the manual wireless set up option.

You can also list your connection types and settings using the advanced TCP/IP window, picture below.
