configuring dhcp for almost-seamless use of nwam
By sommerfeld on Dec 10, 2007
When I use my laptop at home at my desk, I usually have it plugged in to a port replicator. I have wireless but I need to plug in for power anyway.
When I undock to use the laptop in a different part of the house, nwam brings up the wireless and uses the same client ID with the wireless interface, and the DHCP server gives it the same address. There's a brief period of about 4 seconds when bits don't move, but no manual intervention (aside from the physical act of plugging/unplugging) is necessary.
And when I bring the laptop back to my desk and plug it in, the reverse transition is also automatic.
