    Proxy Switcher
    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?

    Specs:
    27 iMac i5, MBP 13 & iMac 20, 2TB dual TC, AppleTV, iPh4S
    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.
