It is a network settings manager that switches a computer between multiple network configurations (profiles) with one click of a button.
A profile can include LAN-settings (IP-address, DNS, gateway), your browser's proxy settings (supports Internet Explorer, Firefox and Opera), Windows Firewall settings, network drive mappings, default printer, SMTP-server and more.
For example you can switch from a static to a DHCP assigned IP address, or switch one static IP address to another.
Use your laptop / notebook on multiple networks: assume you have a DHCP-enabled network at your office, and a static IP-address assigned to your network card at home.
Every time you connect your notebook or laptop to a new network, you have to change network adapter settings manually. But it would be easier to store two profiles (called "office" and "home") and switch between these two profiles.
If you deal with two or more locations, you can benefit from this network switcher utility which creates a profile with your configuration settings: TCP / IP-settings, browser-proxy (Firefox-compatible, Opera-compatible), network drives, default printer settings, SMTP server address etc. Then you can easily switch between network settings by activating a profile.
