I'm looking for a program that will allow you to easily switch between networks on a laptop, when moving between networks, so that one can easily keep their static IP and dns setting for the specific network they are on.

I've seen programs like this before, but I can't think of any off the top of my head. Are any programs like this location-aware now days? That would enable the avoidance of even having to press a button to switch network profiles.

Try Free IP Switcher:

Free IP Switcher is a perfect solution for you. It switches between preconfigured network settings with a single click and without any reboot. With Free IP Switcher you can automatically change all network settings on your pc: IP address, network masks, default gateway, DNS server, wins server, proxy settings, default printer and more.

Or, as an alternative, you can try NetSetMan:

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