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.
