I have (1) laptop with xp, (2) IP's.....one IP at home and a diff IP at work. I now have to chg the IP manually to connect to work and would like a shortcut or something. In other works: I have one computer... and depending on where I am ( work or home) I want it to connect to the network using diffrent IP adresses for itself... at work it has a designated IP address but at home it has to connect through my local network. What ideas can be used here...please!!!
