NetConnectChoose is a very simple to use, portable network connection chooser which allows you to quickly switch network connections that are in use, when multiple adapters are available.

You might not know this, but multiple connections are possible, if you for example have Ethernet and a wireless adapter active at the same time. With NetConnectChoose, connection switching, to determine the default one, is very easy.

Interface of NetConnectChoose is very simple. The only thing that you’re gonna get is a list of network adapters and the standard menu toolbar combo in the top left corner of the screen.

This is an application from the NirLauncher set of system tools that we talked about before (like, Nirlauncher, Password Security Scanner, and CustomExplorerToolbar). How many entries you’re gonna see on the list depends on the number of network adapters and connections attached to them. Users with more than one adapter are usually laptop owners, where both Ethernet and wireless interfaces are available.

Key features of NetConnectChoose – free network connection selection software for Windows are:

  • Portable – doesn’t require installation in order to be used
  • Network connection switching – change default connection in one click
  • Find out connection info – MAC address, time, data transfered, IP address
  • HTML export of the connection list is available and can be setup
  • Find tool – for large lists of connections search tool is available
  • System tray icon – can be minimized to the system tray when no needed

Multiple connections are possible, like we already mentioned, when multiple adapters are available. Switching between them usually means that you have to navigate through Windows settings until you find the list of connections and once you’re there, select a different default connection. With NetConnectChoose everything is much more easier to manage, because you’re presented with a list of network connections right away.
