Possible Duplicates:
Can the built-in OS X “Location” feature auto select locations based on wireless networks?
Can I automate location changing so I don't have to drive the choice manually?
Start/stop internet sharing from a script?

Is it possible in Mac OS X to somehow make it change the network location from a custom location profile to automatic when leaving the home network without having to manually adjust the settings in system preferences?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

Although not automatically, a shorter way to go is in the menu: apple->Location and then choose your location,.

Airport Location does that. (See my answer to this question).
