Very aggravating net config in win7 / vista
I am a network engineer
I move from location to location several times a day and have to change my network address and settings as many as 20 times in the course of a normal work day
I have been using MS OS since DOS 1.2 and know what i'm doing.
I use MS OS because all the lemmings use it and i need to have practical experience with it.
I was hoping it would change in 7, but i've just installed the RTM version and alas no reprieve:
since vista, the amount of time i spend changing from network to network is REDICULOUS!
when changing networks as frequently as i do, the network identification frequently fails in a variety of ways
MS - good work for the unskilled/uninformed users
MS - GIVE THE IT COMMUNITY the ability to turn it off so we can JUST GET TO WORK. I want xp like experience - set ip, select OK, just get to work!!!
