My pastor's laptop is having problems with connecting to the internet. He uses the same DSL provider at home and at work. The problem is that the connections will only work after you have re-configured the lan settings for each location every time he re-connects. Is the solution 2 NIC's ? I've heard that this is the best way to do this. (win XP pro) Thanks!

are both locations set to use dynamic addresses or static?  
if both are dynamic create a batch file on the desktop to do the reconfiguring.

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

when ever he first connects to the new location... run the batch file
