TCP/IP Settings For Different Wireless Signals

    I often change the wireless network I'm connected to, but like to have
    a static IP address when I'm at home so I can keep bittorrent running
    smoothly. However, if I go to TCP/IP settings for my "Wireless Network
    Connection" it keeps those settings for all wireless signals.

    Is there anyway to have different TCP/IP settings for my wireless
    connection depending on the wireless signal I'm connected to?

    Thanks in advance!

  2. Leave it set for DHCP?

    I have port forwarding set for a certain IP on my home router, which
    is the reason I want to keep my static IP at home, but leave it as
    DHCP when I'm connected to different wireless signals. I hope this
    makes sense?

    Your Wireless router should be able to give you a 'static' DHCP
    address based on your wireless MAC.

  5. What you want seems to be mutually exclusive, but I've never tried to
    accomplish that. Maybe someone has the perfect answer for you, but it
    ain't me.

    Do you mean like reading past posts in 24HSHD
    and finding the mention of netswitcher as an answer to very similar

    I haven't used the wireless manager bit yet.

    I tried the software but it doesn't automate the task based on
    wireless SSID. I still have to manually switch profiles so it seems
    kind of pointless.

    It would do that how? Once you figure that out submit a request to the

    Having to switch profiles doesn't appear to be a problem, at least all
    the info is there to switch between.
