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.


circle-1 Choose Apple menu, System Preferences.

circle-2 Click the Network button to see your choices.

circle-3 Choose Edit Locations from the Location pop-up menu.

circle-4 Click the Add Location button, give the location a descriptive name, and click Done.

circle-5 Choose the network interface you want to set up from the list at the left.

circle-6 Make the appropriate settings for that network interface.

circle-7 Click Apply to switch to the new location.
