Hardware profile change

I use my laptop at home and in the office.  At home I use the router DHCP to get a IP address.  In the office I need a static IP address.  
I setup two hardware profile one for the office and one for the home.  When I change profiles it will not change the properties for the TCP/IP settings. It stays at the last setting I used, Office or Home.

roybrody,

There are instructions for doing this in Windows 2000 at:-

They should work in XP which also supports the Netsh command.

I would set up a couple of batch files with the appropriate commands for your situation and run them as necessary.
