Windows 7: Multiple Configs for 1 Adapter

Multiple Configs for 1 Adapter

This may be a simple thing that I'm overlooking, but I'll be darned if I can find it after a couple hours of googling/poking about.

I have a Netbook running Windows 7 Pro. I move it between two locations (Location A and Location B).

At Location A, we are assigned static IPs (for some security reasons), so I have to punch the numbers into the configuration manually.

At Location B, we use DHCP.

For now I have been going into the Adapter settings and changing the options manually (obtain IP Automatically/Use this IP, etc). this is kind of a hassle and annoying (espically when I have to reenter all the static information).

Is there someway/somewhere that I can go in and set two configurations on the one adpater? It'd be nice if I could clone the one adapter and just activate/deactivate whichever one I want to use.

Much appreciated for any help
