    Hi everyone,

    I would like to know if it is possible for me to configure an alternative wireless network settings on Mac.

    I know that it is doable on windows (having used it myself). However, I cant seem to find that option on Mac.

    The reason for this is because on my work network, I have to configure a static ip address and custom dns. However when I go home, my wireless is set to automatic.

    Therefore I do not want to keep reverting and resetting the static ip and dns everything i go back to work from home.

    If I'm understanding you correctly, you need to set up a new "Location". This can be accomplished by opening up System Preferences, going to "Network", clicking on the drop down box at the top, that should say "Automatic", clicking on "Add Location", and entering in the information for your office. This is all you need to do. Sorry if something is slightly off above, I'm on a train right now with my iPad.
