I have a few problems related to uncommon network configuration.
Firstly, under network connections > adapter properties > ipv4 properties, I can choose to obtain DNS server automatically or specify my own DNS server. I would like to be able to choose different DNS servers based on which connection I am currently connected to. Is it possible? I believe this should be a common practice in corporate environment with local DNS servers serving internal zones. When employee brings back his notebook and connects to his home network, he should use a public DNS server.
I am currently using corporate DNS server as primary NS and public as secondary. However, I do experience 404 occasionally when browsing intranet because secondary NS was used to resolve. My corporate server is able to forward requests outside of our zone so I am looking to put both primary and secondary NS as my corporate NS.
Secondly, is it possible to specify the BSSID or mac address of the access point I wish to connect to? This is because there are multiple access points broadcasting the same SSID and I am automatically connected to the one with strongest signal. Im omitting the details because it is rather complicated but I do need to select a particular access point and there is no way around it.
Is windows 8 able to do so, if not are there are 3rd party software which allows such settings?
Thanks in advance.
