Hi, at my office I have to use proxy settings to connect to the internet, and at home obviously not. I don't like swithing my proxy settings every time. Is there a way I can set it up so it automatically detect my network, and set the proxy accordingly?

Go into Apple/location/Network Prefs/ and make Location for work and another one for home. In each add settings including your ISPs DNS settings for home, then it is just a matter of going to Apple menu and selecting the appropriate when u move.

NOTE: Thread moved to appropriate forum. Not just anything goes in Anything Goes

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
