I have a laptop running Windows 7 Professional. There are two wireless networks I connect to every day:
- Home: no proxy server
- Work: proxy server with authentication
On my iPad and iPhone, I've got two WIFI network profiles (one for home, one for work). The work one has the proxy server settings specified. The home one has no proxy specified. It all works great and I don't need to go changing settings around whenever I move from home to work or vice versa.
On my laptop, however, I can't seem to get this going. I can certainly connect to both networks, but when I'm at work I have to go and change the proxy settings (in Internet Options) to be able to use the network. When I'm at home, I have to then go and turn them off. It's a small thing, but considering this is something I have to do every day, it's a bit annoying.
Is there any way I can make Windows automatically switch proxy settings on or off based on the network I'm connected to?
