1) On-board-solution here:

Use System/Network/Location/Edit Location and configure two different Networks (i.e. Home & Elswhere). There you can configure different settings.

2) To automate switching between Locations you could try this solution:

Use a tool like Locomatic to automate the process of switching Location settings by network.
