I use my laptop on 2 different networks. Each time I change the network I have to change the IP address, subnet mask, gateway etc.

I'm looking for an application or something that can remember my configurations and I would like to do only a click of a button to change it...

Can you please update the question with details like OS used, both network with DHCP or static IP addressing scheme or mixed. – secureBadshah Nov 2 '09 at 8:48

You can use the "Alternate Configuration" features in Windows to use a set of static settings when it fails to get them via DHCP

  1. Start>Control Panel>Network Connections
  2. Right-click the network adapter>Properties.
  3. Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)>Properties.
  4. General tab> Set to DHCP.
  5. Alternate Configuration tab>"User configured,">fill in the static IP address details
  6. Click OK in all Windows
