Hi Tim:

I do use the Network Device Control tool.  I have to because I switch
between networks a lot.

As for profiles, I tried them in FC1 and FC2 and found that they don't work.
Settings such as the DNS addresses seem to stick.  So I can set up settings
in one profile, and when I switch to a new profile, the other settings
(wrong) migrate and wipe out the right ones.  My IP address and DNS server
addresses need to change frequently and these are the settings I really need
to have working.

I'm not in a position to upgrade to FC3, and I figure that the developers
won't be interested in the issue unless I do.  But if you're running into
this kind of problem, it's not you.

Erik
