A. If you use your Win2K notebook in a variety of networks (e.g., at different customer sites), you probably always have to change the network settings. The Netsh utility lets you save your settings in a file that you can later use to restore your complete network settings.
To Save the current Settings, type the following command:
netsh -c interface dump >networksetting.txtYou can then create a dump file for every network that you use.
To load a set of settings again, type the following command:
netsh -f networksetting.txt
Using the Netsh utility, you can also easily switch between different configuration settings.
Other options are MultiNetwork Manager from GlobeSoft http://www.multinetworkmanager.co.uk/mnm_home.htm , without needing the user to have Administrator privileges. Also you can use Net Switcher from http://www.netswitcher.com.
