Chapter 13. Connecting to the Internet > Working with Locations

Working with Locations

If you’ve used the Network Setup Assistant to create one or more location settings, you can choose the one you want to use to connect to the Internet. You can also rename and remove locations. You do all this in the Network Preferences pane.

To choose a location

1.
Choose Apple > System Preferences (Figure 1) or click the System Preferences icon in the Dock.

2.
In the System Preferences window that appears, click the Network icon. Network preferences appears, displaying Network Status information (Figure 2).

3.
Choose the location you want to use from the Location pop-up menu (Figure 18).

Figure 18. The Location pop-up menu with a bunch of locations added. (It’s unlikely that you’ll have this many location settings!)


4.
Click Apply Now. Network Status (Figure 2) changes to reflect your settings.
