  • My laptop has a "home" setting, forcing my address to Works just fine. The airport hands out x.2 to x.199, so there'll never be a collision with me. I can put rules with port forwarding to my laptop. Yeay.
    • Randal L. Schwartz
    • Stonehenge
    • Isn't that "home" setting a Network Location? I specifically want to avoid having to tell my laptop to change its location. That's dumb. Maybe if it was easy to say "you are at this location when you get this ssid," but even that is dumb.
      • Yes, I just set a netloc. But the other advantage is that I can sleep my laptop for 30 seconds (like to change a battery) and when I wake back up, TCP still hasn't complained. If you're on DHCP'ed address, and you sleep, you wake up wondering what your address is, and you end up with a different one, and all your connections are bad. Feh!

        • I agree with merlyn. I have a Home setting, and an Away setting.

          Home setting is basically the same, just that I use DHCP with static IP. It would be nicer if I could tell the Home location to inherit all settings from the other except "these." But it's not a huge deal IMO.
