    I have a laptop with Windows XP. At work I have a wireless connection
    and at home. When I take the laptop home it finds the network and I can
    access the intenet. When I go back to work, I find the network, but no
    internet. Looking at ipconfig, the gateway and dns is still from home.
    If I run ipconfig /renew all is fine.

    The only time I have a problem is when I come back to work. What do I
    need to do so I don't have to run ipconfig all the time?

  2. That fact that running ipconfig /renew indicates the DHCP client is not
    being instructed to renew its address when you transition from your home
    network to the network at your place of work. Usually, when you transition
    from 1 wireless network to another the wireless service will issue a DHCP IP
    address renewal. Is it possible your home network and work network have the
    same name?

    Not the same name, but the router is the same ip. Maybe if I switch the
    work to the, subnet that might work.
