I am looking for something to help me quickly and easily change the IP address(es) I use on my laptop's network adapter.

The operating system is Windows 7. Changing it is not an option.
My day job is in HVAC and industrial/commercial security. I regularly go to sites and wire myself into their network to access their equipment. Some sites need me to be set to automatically get an IP address, others need me to set a single address, and other still require me to have three, four, five or six IP addresses on my network adapter. Every time I go to a site, I manually change the IP address on my network adapter to suit the site. I keep track of the IPs for each site on my blackberry. Currently I have over forty sites that I need to change my IP information to access, and it is getting tiresome.
What I want is a way to have presets or saved configs for my network adapter so I can go in and click "YOUTH PRISON" or "CANCER CLINIC" or "FEDERAL OFFICE BUILDING" and have my network adapter load up the correct IPs. Is there such a thing? Is there something in Windows 7 that does this that I don't know about?
