Networking laptop for the road

Switching computers from network to network.

I’ve a 2 weeks old Toshiba Satellite laptop. It is pretty neat and I’m beginning to like it. One of the uses I see for this is to be able to hook up to multiple networks.

Apparently, Windows XP can do this now. It is pretty straight forward in Linux.

Win2K and XP have a utility called netsh.exe. Configure PC to use one network. Then run netsh.exe -c interface dump > nwconfig_1.txt. When you configure another network, dump the configuration to another file. After this, when you want to recall a network setting, it is pretty simple. netsh.exe -f nwconfig_1.txt.

This valuable information comes from

  1. Why not try MultiNetwork Manager from GlobeSoft
