Connecting to a home and an office network

I have a laptop that travels between home and the office.  The settings for the office are:
IP: 192.168.100.8
Default Gateway: 192.168.100.254

My home network is a linksys router and all my home computers are set for auto-detect settings.  However, the ip range is 192.168.1.100 - 150 and the default gateway is 192.168.1.1

Without changing settings on either router how can i get my laptop to work with both networks?

Which operating system is this?
Windows XP has an alternative IP address option - you could use that.
For other OS then you will need to look at a third party utility. There is something called netswitcher which can do the job for you.

Network Settings of your LAN card. Choose TCP/IP and then select Properties. You should see "Alternative Configuration".
