Quickly Switch Between Multiple Internet Connections on Windows

These days, it isn’t uncommon that you connect multiple internet connections simultaneously to your computer. For example, LAN, Wi-Fi and Mobile internet (GPRS, 3G, etc.) together on a PC. However, as you all knows, switching between Internet connections isn’t a simple task. To switch an Internet Connection from one to other, usually you need to find your Network Settings, then find the connection and then connect.

If you’re looking for a simple solution to switch between Internet Connections (LAN, Wi-Fi, 3G, GPRS) for your Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows XP computer, Nirsoft has developed a simple tool called NetConnectChoose.

NetConnectChoose can be downloaded free at developer’s webpage here. Once downloaded, run the app. It’ll displays list of networks which have active internet connection.

 The default internet connection is marked with a Green sign. If you want to change your default internet connection, select one from the list and press F8 to make it your default Internet Connection.

And, If you want to temporarily switch between connections, just press F9.
