Is there a way to automatically change TCP/IP settings

I have a few laptops all running windows XP which move around a lot. In a particular office the DNS server has to be set to 192.168.33.1 and the WINS to the same. However the problem is that if I take the laptops out of the office the settings have to be all pushed back to automatic and the WINS removed.

This is quite annoying to change all the time - I was wondering if there was an application or if it is possible to create a batch so that I could just double click something and I could switch between automatic and the custom manual settings.

Why not just use DHCP to set this?

here you have some good info about changing tcpip settings from command line.
use it as you want, and write it on a .bat or .cmd file

Hope it helps.
