JSI Tip 3858. How can I use various network settings on my laptop?

I first explained the use of the NETSH tools in tips 2536 and 2279.

If you connect your laptop to different networks, you can use NETSH to save each configuration and restore them as needed.

To save a configuration:

netsh -c interface dump >Meaningful_File_Name.txt

to load a saved configuration:

netsh -f Meaningful_File_Name.txt
