I've used Access Connection with my previous Thinkpad laptop, but now I own a non-lenovo pc. Is there any good alternative to manage and automatically switch network profiles?

what OS are you running? – Journeyman Geek Nov 24 '10 at 2:13
Just FYI, I believe you can still use Lenovo Access Connections. You can download it from Lenovo's website. Just Google it. – David Nov 24 '10 at 14:59

If your OS is Windows, have a look at netsetman.

I have a Lenovo ThinkPad, and I dropped Access Connections in favor of netsetman. I find it lighter and more intuitive. The free version comes with the ability to configure up to 6 different network profiles, using any of your network devices - more than enough for me. The paid version is unlimited.

Access Connections has some automated VPN configuration tools (which I never used) - I don't think netsetman can match this feature.

I'm trying NetSetMan, and seems good enough. Since I need proxy configuration, I bought the pro, but alas it's missing ability to configure proxy authentication. Also VPN would be a great addition, but I can live without. Thanks! – Raffaele Castagno Nov 25 '10 at 13:13
BWT, since I need only one profile with proxy authentication, I'm going to fake it creating a local proxy with – Raffaele Castagno Nov 25 '10 at 13:16
