Chapter 9. Getting Online > Switching Locations

9.4. Switching Locations

If you travel with a laptop, you may wind up connecting to the Internet differently in each location: Ethernet at the office, dial-up in the hotel room. Or maybe you simply visit the branch office from time to time, and you're getting tired of having to change the local access number for your ISP each time you leave home (and return home again).

Figure 9-5. The Location feature lets you switch from one "location" to another just by choosing its name—either from the menu (top) or from this pop-up menu in System Preferences (bottom). The Automatic location just means "the standard, default one you originally set up." (Don't be fooled: Despite its name, Automatic isn't the only location that offers multihoming, which is described later in this chapter.)
