Windows 7: Possiblity Question: Can I create multiple "profiles" for WiFi adapter

Possiblity Question: Can I create multiple "profiles" for WiFi adapter

I do not think this is possible, but it is worth a shot anyway.

Is there a way that I can create/save multiple network connection "profiles" for the wireless adapter in my laptop?

For work, I often connect to our device routers to program them before they go to the customer. I connect to them via WiFi and I have to edit my IPv4 settings for each model of router.

I'd like to create/save a profile for each of these where I can disable the DHCP standard profile and then enable whichever IP address scheme I need.

Kind of hopeful, i know, but maybe someone knows of something.


Thanks for any help in advance.

yes, but usually you need to do so through your adapter itself, not through windows (I don't really know where a windows profile could be kept, but I will look). Here is my adapter location for different profiles I can save:

However, after re-reading your post, I do not think it is likely you can have that setting saved to a profile, but try anyway
