Wireless network and network profiles

Hi , I am supporting a local company they have a wireless lan and 2 desktop PC, running into a network ADSL modem/Network hub.  I have set my laptop up so the network domain, network name, and ip address are setup for there office.
I have just setup a wireless lan at home, and so have set the domain name, network name, ip address so I can use it at home.
I would like to try and find some software which would allow a hot swop idea so where every I am (places above) I can swop the network setting with out having to dig around changing the names and IP address.

Any advice Please

Andy ... what you are requesting is not possible in the form I understand you want it.
What can be done:
If the network you are connecting to has a DHCP server this can provide you the info your card (wireless or not) needs.
As about not digging for settings, in windows 2000/XP you can assign multiple IP addresses to one card, the same for gateways. The DNS that serves you is unimportant (I mean it will serve you no matter in which LAN you are). But those settings need to be done once, and only after that you'll achieve somehow the goal you've mentioned. I say "somehow" cause in wireless case you'll still need to change the SSID, channel, WEP, etc.
