    I'd like to set a manual IP address ONLY for specific hotspots, otherwise
    to use DHCP.

    It doesn't make sense that my static IP settings would
    apply to every single hotspot. Merci!

    Create a new network location - you can switch them from the :apple:-menu

    Thanks. I wish there was an easier way to switch between locations (i.e., drop down on the network taskbar icon) but this works!
