Tool for switching networks (WiFi and non) easily?

Hello folks,

I own an Apple iBook2 running Warty. The machine has two network
devices: eth0, the builtin etherent and eth1, the Apple WiFi airport
extension.

Fine, until now I've used guessnet to automagically adapt my system to
each new network I join to with my iBook. Anyway this tool does not seem
to work perfect on my Warty system -- I have to insert some other manual
commands and restart /etc/init.d/network.

Due to this little annoying fact I would like to know which tools are
you, community, using for switching networks easily and adapting
automatically the system to the new network?

I heard there would be also some interesting GNOME tools beside
text-based netenv, guessnet, etc.

Thanks for feedback.
Regards,

 I.
