Windows XP Pro has an "Alternate Address" setting in the network settings.  I 
use this with my laptop and it works great.
Another easy way around would be to give her an second NIC. One for the office 
and one for home.  Not a pretty solution but simple and easy for a non 
technical person to understand.

Subject: [windows2000] Switching between IP settings


I have a user that is using a laptop at work but wants to be able to connect to 
her hi-speed internet at home.  The IP scheme here at work is static while her 
hi-speed is DHCP.  What is the easiest way to configure a laptop to use two 
different IP configurations?  She will need to be able to select either option 
fairly easily since she is not a sophisticated user.

Thanks for any help or suggestions.
