I have found many of your articles very handy and I was wondering if you could give me any advice on a â€śeasy buttonâ€? fix for my brother-in-lawâ€™s Laptop.
He is a trucker and has subscriptions to a few different wireless services at truck stops, unfortunately some of them, when he connects, run a script or something that set specific IP address and DNS for him. When he goes to the next truck stop, it wonâ€™t always connect to the new placeâ€™s network until he resets his connection to â€śobtain IP automaticallyâ€?.
Your article on opening the network connections from the command line got me interested in if there was perhaps a way to write a command line shortcut to reset the TCP/IP v4 back to Auto Obtain, that way he can just click an icon instead of having to open the properties. (He isnâ€™t the most computer savvy person and I have had to talk him through it a few times now.)
I figured that way next time he is home I can just set it up for him to save us both a huge headache.
Thanks alot in advance for any ideas!
