Wireless Profiles (for DHCP) possible? Need to force an IP address on DHCP.
Here's what I'm trying to do...
My wireless network uses DHCP.
I have a laptop. When I'm home, I want it to connect on a specific IP address (because I have port forwarding setup to a specific IP)
But when I'm out of the house, I want it to be able to easily connect to other wireless networks.
If I hard code my home network IP, gateway, etc. in TCP/IP of my wireless connection, then I'll have to always disable it and put the settings back to "Obtain an IP address automatically" when I'm out to get it to connect to other wireless networks.
Is there a way, through Windows or a freeware program - that I can force it on a specific IP when I'm home, but still have it automatic when I'm out?
I'm running WindowsXP Pro on the laptop, with a Netgear Pro Safe Firewall FVS318v3 router where I connect a Linksys WAP54G wireless router to.
