"Airplane mode" for OS X
Authored by: kirkmc on Mar 25, '13 09:30:04AM

So tell me what doesn't match, because I did test it on Mountain Lion, and it did work, and the preferences are exactly as I described...

"Airplane mode" for OS X

I think you missed clicking the "Advanced..." button, then clicking the TCP/IP tab of the resulting sheet. That will reveal the "Configure IPv4" drop-down.

Nope, it's there when I click on any interface other than Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or VPN.

In OS 10.8.3, I don't have a Location item in the Apple Menu, so switching locations via that method doesn't seem to be available.

Also, in 10.8.3, I tried creating a new location and then simply deleting all of the various network interfaces from the list on the left. When I clicked "Apply", my Wi-Fi turned off and my Bluetooth stayed off (it was off before), so seemingly this works, too. If anyone can confirm to the contrary, let me know.

Anyway, this is useful to me. Thanks!

Found this, too:

How to simplify choosing Network Locations with AppleScript

I set it as a service available everywhere (requiring no input).
