Forum Question: Change DNS Server Automatically When Changing Network

Hi,
I use the application “name bench” to search for the fastest DNS server available. That works great. When I am at home the fastest is google (8.8.8.8), but when I goto my work another DNS is faster.
Is there a way (application, Applescript, etc) which changes my DNS automatiCally when I connect to another network?
Regards,
Rob

    There’s no way I know of to have your DNS change with your network — at least not if you assign your own DNS.
    But you can use Network Locations to have different DNS settings and then easily switch between them. See http://macmost.com/using-network-locations.html
