Create profiles for your network connections with NetCon Manager
If you need to connect to several networks (to access the internet) from the same computer, you should probably know how annoying it is to change the network connection settings each time you connect to a different network.
Annoying is the fact that you have to write down those settings on a piece of paper or in a text file, although you do realize that's not a very good idea. Even more annoying is navigating your way through the Start Menu or Control Panel to access the network settings and changing by hand the IP, Gateway, DNS Servers etc, each and every time you change your location.
With NetCon Manager you can forget about all these problems: the software enables you to save the settings for each location in a profile. Open NetCon, select the connection, enter the network settings, type a name for the profile, press Save and you're done. Now each time you need to apply those settings, just select the connection and profile, press Load and then Change network settings! That's it! It takes less than three seconds!
