NetSetMan lets easily you change your network settings on the fly

Do you have to change your network settings daily or go between multiple networks with your laptop?  If you regularly change your network configuration, you know it can be a tedious and time consming process, plus you have to remember each set of settings for each network you connect to.

Enter NetSetMan. 

NetSetMan is a network settings manager which can easily switch between 6 different, visually structured profiles including:

  • IP Address
  • Subnet Mask
  • Default Gateway
  • DNS Server
  • WINS Server
  • Computer Name
  • Workgroup
  • DNS Domain
  • Default Printer
  • Network Drives
  • SMTP Server
  • Hosts File Entries
  • Scripts (BAT, VS, JS, ...)

With NetSetMan, you can now quickly and easily change your network settings based on where you are without having to remember each set of settings.  Profiles are easily backed up if you should have to reinstall your system.  Best of all, its FREE.

I wish it could configure Firefox/IE proxy settings too. Can anyone guide me as to how that could be done through a script, which Netsman has the capability to execute?

Hi all,
I shot Ilja Herlein, the author of NetSetMan a mail about disabling/enabling network adapter. If you're interested, here is the conversation:

Hello George,

Thanks for your feedback.
This feature will come in one of the later versions. I already experimented
with different ways to de-/activate network adapters, but which all of them
had some disadvantages. I will take a closer look at a later point and then
it will be included into NetSetMan. However, I can't promisse to do this
very soon. Stay tuned...

Kind regards,
Ilja Herlein

Hi Ilja,

I was just looking at your nice tool NetSetMan. It works great but I
have one question. I am often switching between Ethernet and WiFi
networks. I am not a friend of having my WiFi adapter enabled when I am
working off of an Ethernet. Does NetSetMan offer disabling/enabling
network adapters? Like, let's say when I activate an Ethernet profile
that it disables my WiFi card?

Best regards,

Thanks for posting your dialog with the developer on this. It is this type of communication between end user and software developer that makes products better.

Hi Joe,
thanks for that note. I am looking such a tool for free for a while now. I downloaded NetSetMan and it makes a real good impression. It dos what it is supposed to do as well but it has one major drawback for me: It cannot disable/enable network adapters (or have I overseen that?).

In my case I am often switching between home and several offices. Some of them have Ethernets, some Wireless, some both. I am not a friend of having my wirelss adapter enabled when I am on Ethernet (and the other way around). So I would like to see that a network switcher can disable/enable adapters as specified.

Other than that it is a great little proggy.

Thanks and best regards,
