When to Use Reactive Network Configuration

Reactive network configuration is a valuable feature for users of laptop models and systems that require frequent changes in their network environment and connection methods. You can set up user-defined profiles that enable you to connect to networks in a variety of settings, for example, at the office, at home, or on the road. In addition, the network administration graphical user interface (GUI) (formerly known as the NWAM GUI) makes the setting up of static IP configurations and connections to WiFi networks much easier than traditional networking tools and commands. Reactive network profiles can be configured to adapt to changes in your network environment, such as the loss of Ethernet connectivity or the addition or removal of a network interface card (NIC).
