    Is there anyway to change my network location from the menubar? I have 3 different locations setup, Work, Home, and Automatic, and i'm tired of having to go into the network settings to change it. The only real reason that i can't just leave it on automatic is that i need to use a static ip at work, and a different static ip at home due to my internet connection sharing setup (can only get dialup there grrrrrrrrrrr) I'd really like a little icon in the menubar to change this setting. :x:

    the chances of him using wireless with dial-up is pretty slim, although some people do it.

    sorry, wish i could help

    you know what, of all the times i've clicked the apple menu i've never seen this, but you can change your location from there, which is pretty much what i'm looking for. And, yes i do use the wireless with my dialup at home. I know it sucks, but whewn you live in the sticks there isn't much choice. THanks anyway ;)
