How can I switch IP addresses?

By EtherealRaven ·
OK, this is how it is. I have a Win2k laptop, and I take it with me to work, but I also wish to use the cable I have at home. I have DSL at work, and I recently got cable at home. I have IP addresses, gateways, DNS servers, etc., for my DSL at work.I was told that there is 3rd-party software that automatically enters in the IP addresses I need when I am at work, and changes them when I want to switch to my cable at home. Does anyone know of such software? If I can't find a solution soon, I mayhave to cancel my cable, because I need to use it at home. Please help!

I don't know about a third party software, before you cancle your cable, take a look at some routers. There are many router that provide connections to highspeed networks and their own dns service.

We have a router. That is my point. With cable and the router I have (at home), you "Obtain IP address automatically." This clears the IP addresses. At work, I have ot specify the IPs. I need a way to switch back and forth easily.

you can switch the router to disable DHCP and use the same ip you use at work. You just have to set them in the same scope and same gateway.
