How to Automate IP Switch in Different Network


Do you have different Wi-Fi or LAN connection settings at your home and office? Do you tend to change DNS settings often while browsing the internet? If you do have to configure your network connection settings on a regular basis, it should be safe to assume that doing it manually each time isn’t convenient.
Opening the IP configuration windows take their own sweet time and then configuring all those IP and DNS address manually again and again can get really annoying. Today I will make life simple for all my friends who need to change their network card configuration often enough.
NetSetMan is a simple Windows freeware that saves your frequently used network adapter connection details and then changes it automatically for you on the click of a mouse button. So let’s see how it’s done.

Download and install NetSetMan to get started. When you launch the application, you will notice that it provides six sets of profiles that you can configure. To start the configuration, click on Set 1 and select the network you would like to configure.

Now provide all the details you would like to configure in the card, like the IP details, DNS details and other advanced options. All the changes will be automatically saved in the app.
 
If you would like to change settings of more than a single network card when you activate a particular set, click on the plus button next to the card selection dropdown control. A new window configuration window will be added to the particular set and you can configure the settings for a different data card you would like to change with the particular set. Please do not create conflicts while configuring the data cards for a particular set.

You can set 6 different profiles at a time using the tool and in each set you can configure your entire data card. You can rename the sets so that it becomes easy to refer them while switching. To rename a particular set, right-click on it and select Rename for the menu.

There are certain advanced options you can configure within the app, which frankly speaking I have no idea about. So try them out on your own. Finally, when you are done with the configuration, click on the profile you want to activate and click on the Activate button.

The app will then start the process and automatically change all the settings of the network cards configured in the set. You may also change the settings using the app icon in the system tray from the right-click menu.

Conclusion

If you have to change the connection preferences of your network cards frequently, you will definitely find NetSetMan amazing. The ability to set multiple cards on the same profile makes it the best from the rest.

Kingston Launches HyperX Plug and Play RAM for Intel PCs

Kingston has released its new HyperX plug and play (PnP) series which is a collection of memory kits that utilize modules which are capable of working at frequencies of either 1,600 MHz or 1,866 MHz. This memory module is designed specifically for use with desktops and laptops powered by the latest generation of Intel Core i5 or Core i7 central processing units.

There are six kits in total, all of them composed of two kits, meaning that modules of 2 GB and 4 GB are used. There are two Dual in-line Memory Module (DIMM) kits, while the other four come in the Small Outline In-line Memory Module (SODIMM) form factor.

The modules are programmed using Joint Electron Devices Engineering Council (JEDEC) compliant settings, allowing 1600MHz and 1866MHz frequency support. It is as simple as plugging in the memory and turning on the machine, as the system automatically recognizes faster memory speed with no further basic input/output system (BIOS) settings required.
