IP Settings Home vs Office

I have a laptop computer that I use both at home and at the office.  At the office I use DHCP/Obtain IP address automatically to get all my correct addressing.  But at home I have DSL service from Pac Bell with static IP addresses.  So I have to program in the IP addresses at home and then reboot.  Does anyone have a seamless means of automating this switching back and forth?  That is at home I boot up and I have my static IP addresses ready to go but at work I use DHCP.  I was thinking perhaps I could double click a .reg file at the end of the day that would change the IP settings right prior to shutting down.  What would that .reg file look like?  Or perhaps you have another method that might be even easier - like a DOS menu popping up on bootup where you select home or office?
Looking forward to your reply.

I don't see how this product would allow me to switch IPsettings for each respective LAN.  It looks more geared toward various dialup netowkring configurations.

JHance is a tech at this site and is also the developer of that product. It should have settings to allow you to switch from LAN settings to dial-up and back.

sorry bout that...when I went to open your link, it kept crashing my browser so I never got to see what your product was.

Got another one for Ya - I use this on my laptop - just what you're trying to do.  Before you shutdown, it asks if you'll be on the "other" network when you boot up (so it's asking if you want it to change your settings before rebooting) and you can set multiple network profiles.  Great product, worth the $ to register.
It's called NetSwitcher.
