Multiple LAN Connections

Most desktop computers sit where they are installed, gathering dust until they’re obsolete, and participate in only one LAN. But portable computer users often carry their computers from office to office, docking or plugging into several different local LANs. While Microsoft has made it easy for you to manage several different dial-up and VPN connections, it’s difficult to manage connections to several different LANs if the network configuration settings are manually set.

Internet Protocol settings are the difficult ones. If your computer is set to use automatic TCP/IP configuration, you won’t encounter any problems; your computer will absorb the local information each time you connect.
