Creating Custom Network Locations
Network locations are groups of network settings, each saved with a descriptive name so you can switch all your settings with a single click and get online or on the local network instantly no matter where you happen to be. After you’ve created a location, to use it all you have to do is choose it from a pop-up menu.
Choose Apple menu, System Preferences.
Click the Network icon to see your choices.
Choose Edit Locations from the Location pop-up menu.
Click the Add Location button, give the location a descriptive name, and click Done.
Choose the network interface you want to set up from the list at the left.
Make the appropriate settings for that network interface.
Click Apply to switch to the new location.
