a laptop I administer needs to roam between two wireless networks. one has a manually configured HTTP proxy and one uses NAT.
This is easy to do in Mac and Linux but how do I do it in Windows XP Home?

thanks in advance

You will need a third party software for this. Toshiba supplies "Config Free" with their laptops, and it does exactly that, but it's only for their series. I looked for this type of solution a few months back and found a couple.

Check Smith Micro's QuickLink Mobile for Windows. They also have versions for Mac OS.

luckily this is a Toshiba laptop and configfree works like a charm! thanks MF!
I hope Microsoft put this feature in Vista it is a basic fitting to Mac OS and most Linux distro's

I "knew" it was Toshiba. I can read minds! I am going to create a TV Show!

Seriously though, good one. This utility is handy (I don't use it because my network is not that restrictive, but would if needed - I have a Toshiba M205 Tablet PC). They also have a Config Free for the Toshiba Pocket PC.
