How to copy network location settings between machines Network
If, like me, you connect to many different networks (I'm a network consultant), then you probably find OS X's ability to create different locations a most useful tool. But how to back them up to reinstall or tranfer to a new machine? After a long search, eureka! They're all in one single file:

/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist

All you need to do is copy that file and restore it on the new machine.

If you also connect to wireless networks and have passwords for these stored in your keychain and would like to keep those then don't forget to backup the system keychain file as well. Located at:

/Library/Keychains/System.keychain
