Changing gateway and DNS without having to specify IP address

Hi there

I live at this dormitory where we have to Internet connections one major connection which is a 100/100 Mbit connection but which has got a very restrictive firewall. We have also got a secondary connection which is a much slower ADSL connection, which has not got such a restrictive firewall.

So in order to be able to download Diablo III, I would like to be able to switch to this other line (the ADSL one), so far I have not managed to. I have talked to some people who said that I had to change the gateway and the DNS address, and at the same time I had to make sure that I was being assigned an IP address automatically. So I tried to do that, but I cannot figure out how one can do that, as when one wants to change gateway and DNS address one also has to change IP address.

So is there a way to do this in Windows 7? Or has anyone else got a solution?
