That's what DHCP's for. If you want to always have the same IP, tell your DHCP server that your laptop should always have the same IP (check the MAC address).

hmm... so... there are two possibilities... I don't understand you or you don't understand me.... I want to use this notebook in two networks, but each has different setting (IP DNS and such) and for each network I would like to have separate setting so I won't have to manually change all those specs each time I change network...

Get your hands on a copy of this and follow these instructions to get it to run on a non-Toshiba machine.

I used this when I was going back and forth between my home and Uni network.

Ok... by that response, I must assume that you don't control one or both networks, so you cannot use DHCP on them. If you must statically assign an IP and DNS for each network, then you're stuck... you must statically assign it when you switch around.

If you could switch one network to DHCP, Windows would probably remember the static IP and DNS info of the other network when you switch off of DHCP (but I cannot guarantee this - I haven't tried it). This would mean that instead of re-typing everything over again, you just hit a radio button to switch between the two.

You could probably also set up a couple of batch files to execute to switch around by configuring via ipconfig (if Win2k uses it). This would negate needing to switch one network to using DHCP.

No, it doesn't retain this information.

You can't configure TCP/IP settings through ipconfig in Windows, only view. You'd have to use netsh.exe for that.

I see... yes, netsh has the required command-line switches to create two batch files, that looks like your best bet.

If you need more information, look it up in Windows Help (start->help) - it's all there. I'd recommend you place these batch files on the desktop so you can just click to change.

I found this quite interesting, so after a simple googled, i found this:
http://www.chicagotech.net/wintools.htm

Should teach you how to create batch to change IP´s whenever you want.
Question: does it work with XP too?
