I use my Windows 7 laptop at work and at home. At work, I connect through the network, and must specify a static IP, gateway, and static DNS servers. At home, I can connect using automatic configuration.
My problem is that I have to switch between the manual configuration and the automatic one when I move between locations. The gateway and DNS addresses for work do not function at home, and vice versa.
Is there a way to set up the ethernet adapter to automatically switch configurations?
I tried setting the work options in the adapter's IPv4 settings, and then adding the gateway and DNS servers from home in the advanced section of the IPv4 settings, but I can't seem to get it to work.
Is there anything I'm missing?
