ip4 settings

Microsoft Windows 7 professional 32-bit

Specs: windows 7
my windows 7 PC connects to the internet with a USB wifi
adapter. now, I can connect to two wireless networks, one of
which(say w1) requires manual ip settings and the other(say
w2) works on DHCP. if i connect to w1, set the ip info, work
on it for a while and then i connect to w2, i have to change
the ip4 settings. i would like to avoid changing these
settings repeatedly. is it possible to have separate ip4
settings for different wireless connections?

I don't have a win7 box in front of me but vista allows you to do an alternate config which is where you can assign a static ip/settings. This way if dhcp fails you get the static assignment.

thank you, wanderer. i suppose, networking interface are almost
identical for vista and win7.
but i think i am talking about a more general issue, how do you
keep the ip4 settings for different wireless connections. i can
only make global setting for the wifi adapter, not individual
settings for different connections.

sorry, but i cannot find such an option on my win7 box. i dual
boot with ubuntu 10.04 on the same system and there i can set
different ip addresses for different wireless networks. but in
windows, it seems there is a single global ip4 setting for all
connections.

Yep they don't exist in vista or win7. Oh well....

I am still not getting what the issue is with setting dhcp as the primary and on the alternate tab doing your static ip.

i have the same issue .Basically i dont want DHCP on my corporate network because the default configurationhas blocked ports. I need to be on the static IP in order to have unrestricted access to all ports, and all programs and urls.

Now, when I leave the office, | do want DHCP for my home, or internet cafes etc. Windows vista home edition DID have in the "manage wireless networks" interface, the property of adapting wireless properties including ip4 settings to each different saved connection .Win7 seems not to and is driving me crazy.
