I have a notebook that has a LAN PCMCIA card.

I travel between offices which have very different IP ranges and default gateways.

Is there a way in NT4 to setup separate "connections" for one LAN card to save me from having to reset my TCP/IP settings and Identification each time I move?


Part 2

In relation to my previous question.

I have a notebook running NT4 (SP4)

I have administration rights on the local machine.. I also am a member of the administrators group on the LAN.

When I login to a domain I have administrative rights on the domain but not on the NT Workstation. For example in Network Neighborhood I can only see TCP/IP protocol but the properties option and all other options are blanked out. The dialogue box is referred as Network Neighborhood (viewing mode).

I would very much appreciate assistance on this one as the other sites have proven unhelpful. Could this be something to do with tweaking system editor or something else? I would like admin rights on the local machine even when logged on to a domain.


The Answer

I assume you are not using a DHCP server at the site.  DHCP will assign you an IP address.  You can configure you network card for more that one IP address.  Go to the network properties and get in to the TCP/IP properties.  Make sure you have the proper network card selected and press the advanced button below where you enter the IP address and sub net mask.  Here you can assign more that one IP address to your network card and define your gateways.

Part 2

I would verify that you are truly part of the administrators group on the domain or there may possibly be some rights configuration tied to your user name that is causing the problem.  If you still can get the Domain right worked out you can always login to the NT machine locally as the administrator and add your user name from the domain to the local administrators group.  This will give you admin rights to the local machine even if you logon to the domain.
