[Cool Tool] NetSetMan - switch network configurations in a single click

Here's a great little program that saves many lots of headaches when I take my laptop to different places.

It's called NetSetMan (as in "Network Settings Manager"), and it has a free version with 99% of the features most of us need (the pro also has the ability to change the proxy settings). Very cool, and very useful.


NetSetMan is a network settings manager which can easily switch between 6 different, visually structured profiles including:

  • IP Address
  • Subnet Mask
  • Default Gateway
  • Preferred & Alternate DNS Server
  • Computer Name
  • Workgroup
  • DNS Domain
  • WINS Server
  • Default Printer
  • Run Scripts
Additionally only in the Pro version
  • Unlimited Amount of Profiles
  • Network-Domain
  • Complete Proxy Settings (Internet Explorer & Firefox)
  • Home Page (Internet Explorer & Firefox)
