Windows 7: Changing to static or dynamic IP depending on connected WIFI network

Changing to static or dynamic IP depending on connected WIFI network

Hi,

I would like to change my IP address between static and dynamic depending on which WIFI network I'm connected to. I.e. at home I would like a consistent IP address (static) for network file sharing but my University requires dynamic assignment to connect. Is it possible to (automatically) change between dynamic and static depending on the network?

I know how to do this manually, but I was hoping there was a more automated method. Even if there was some sort of batch file I could run when I changed networks?

Thanks in advance

At your house you could setup a dhcp reservation on your router for your laptop.

Network notification is a red cross when I'm connected to wifi
This happens after I tried to install a bluetooth software. It failed to work as described so I uninstalled it. Now my network notification icon is always a red cross. But when I hover my mouse over it, it says I have internet access. And of course I do. Thank you.
