I'm using macbook air with Mavericks. I'm connecting so many wireless network, I could set up TCP/IP settings per network which I connected. How can I do this in Mavericks?

example: I have a router in my home and I want connect this router with manual TCP/IP settings like ip, dns, etc. and I have a router in my office too, but I want connect this router with DHCP. In Linux OSes, network settings setting per network. I'm using Mac OS X now and How can I do that in Mavericks?

    Welcome to superuser. Question does not contain remotely enough information on your problem and what you are trying to achieve. Broadly speaking, network information is handed out by a server/service called DHCP for each network, generally on a router for home and small network setups; larger networks have more sophisticated and therefore complex configurations, but these are usually managed by professional network administrators. – David Apr 18 '14 at 13:24

    Can't say I've ever seen this in linux. network settings are defined by interface, not by network. – Frank Thomas Apr 18 '14 at 14:33
  • You can set network settings per network in linux. Wireless networks already set per ssid, also you can set network settings for ethernet interface if you create profiles to select when you connected to internet via ethernet interface. – Kaan Kölköy Apr 18 '14 at 15:19

The feature you are asking for is called Locations, found in System Preferences > Network > Location pop-up menu.

Example

ss#1

NOTE: Once you have created and set additional network locations, you can then use the Location menu item from the Apple menu to switch to a different location.
