Currently switching between different Networks in XP is difficult. Unless we buy a thirty party tool it’s difficult to switch the profile. Here is the very simple solution to switch the profile in XP machine.

Save the Network Profile to a Text File

  • Open a DOS shell with start -> run; then type cmd
  • On shell use the following command netsh -c interface dump > c:\MyNetwork.txt
  • Using the above method any number of profile can be created and saved to the local machine

Creating a Desktop Shortcut for the Created Profile

  • On the Desktop Right Click New -> Shortcut.
  • Enter "%windir%\system32\netsh.exe -f c:\mynetwork.txt" in the location.

  • Enter a name for the shortcut. If want to change the icon, use the properties of the shortcut.
