Hello,

I use my laptop with Ubuntu 10.04 in my office and home. The network in the office uses proxy while my home is not. Moreover, I want to use OpenDNS for my home network but not in my office. However, both places use wired networks and every time I plug one of them in, Ubuntu always announce that I connect to "eth0", and I always have to change settings.

How would I do to create two different profiles for two of them?

Thank you.

You may want to uncheck the "Connect automatically" box so you can choose which connection to use.
