Hi,

I really need help managing my wireless networks. Here's the rundown: At home, I have a local Static IP Address (which I need for certain programs), but at school I need to have a dynamic address to connect to the network. How can I configure my computer to automatically switch settings each time I change networks so that I do not need to do it manually each and every time?

I am using Windows Vista Home Premium, and I have a Siemens Gigaset SE567 Router (From my ISP, Telus, in Canada)

I have been googling for hours and have still not found a solution.
Thanks alot. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would prefer to do it without any third party applications/programs...

I found a solution in case anyone else ever has this problem. I used a program called Access Connections, which came with my new Lenovo X200 as part of the ThinkVantage suite of applications. I does exactly what I needed. But still, there has to be a way to do this only through Vista...
