Is there a way to make shortcut to Internet Protocol Version 4?

Hello,

I have Internet Protocol V4 settings:

IP adress: 192.168.0.101
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default gateway: 192.168.0.1
Preferred DNS server: 192.168.0.1

I want to know if there's some way to make shortcut for these settings so I can click on that shortcut whenever I want to configure the Internet Protocol V4?

Thanks,

Hello and welcome to Seven Forums.

No, there is no real short cut to ipv4 settings.
Why would you need a short cut as once you have set the parameters there is no real need to continually return.

By the way your Preferred and Alternate DNS should be supplied by your ISP or use some from your local area.
I.E. not your "gateway".

Hello, sorry for the delayment.

The reason I want to do this is because I have a laptop that must be configured on specific ipv4 settings but when I put those settings I can't use the internet and I'm switching between those two status frequently..

So hence I'm looking for a way to make shortcuts for the settings and if possible for the default settings.

Thanks for replaying

Assuming the settings are stored in the registry ...

It may be possible to create .reg files for each set-up, a double click on the .reg file would load the settings into the registry

Not sure if this would need any sort of refresh but most registry changes work immediately so it should be possible

Finding the actual locations is something that could be a long hunt

Can you supply more information into this scenario.
Is this a home network or Enterprise.
What equipment is being used etc.

I have had a quick look around and this link discusses options which may be of use to you, obviously it's an old link but the Apps discussed may still be available

There is also always the old fashioned Network Manager method ... ... netsh

Not a ready made solution but designed to do the job and can be incorporated into a batch file or two

While the OP has a 3rd party solution, the Windows' native solution is netsh.

...to set the static IP address:
Code:
netsh interface ipv4 set address name="Wireless Network Connection" static 192.168.0.101 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.1 1
...to go back to DHCP:
Code:
netsh interface ipv4 set address name="Wireless Network Connection" dhcp
Place each command line in its own batch file.
Put shortcut to the batch files on your desktop.
Set the shortcuts to run as admin.
