How to use dynamic & static ip address at the same time?

There is a time when people who take their notebook from home to the office may run into a problem of having to use a dynamic IP address at home and a static at the office. The following is the method to have both settings in your configuration so you do not need to change them each time you change locations.

1. Go to your network connection properties by right clicking My Network Places and selecting Properties.

2. Right click Local Area Connection icon and select Properties again.

3. Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click on Properties.

4. Check "Obtain an IP address automatically". This is set for your home.

5. Click on the Alternate Configuration tab. This is set for your office. You should know that before doing the step 4, you will not see this tab.

6. Enter your static IP information in the boxes and click OK.

One side effect of using this type of configuration is that it will take a little longer for Windows to completely load since it will first look for an IP address from a DHCP server before using the alternate configuration.
