Simple Static IP
If you're tired of changing your network IP addresses using the built-in Windows tool and you're looking for an easier way to do that, it's the time to have a look at Simple Static IP.
This application provides the easiest way to manage your network settings, offering not only all the details regarding the existing configuration, but also sporting a very simple method of setting up a new profile.
One of the good things about Simple Static IP is the fact that it can work with multiple network adapters at the same time, so it allows you to pick the one whose settings you wish to change from a separate menu.
You can thus change the IP, the subnet, the gateway and the DNS servers, with extra tools to randomize the new IP, use the current DNS, use router as DNS or use OpenDNS configuration for your DNS settings.
What's more, you can also save a current profile and easily load it at a later date, which means you can create different settings for each network you're connecting to and jump from one preset to another with just a few clicks.
It's no surprise that Simple Static IP runs on minimum hardware resources and your computer may not even know that it's running since the footprint on system performance is impressively low.
It works flawlessly on most Windows versions, but Windows 7 users need administrator privileges to make changes to the network settings.
Overall, Simple Static IP is indeed the easiest way to change network IP addresses on the go and the fact that it lets you save presets makes it so much better.
