    Static IP

    I'm setting up a home network with a Netgear RP614 router. I have a Dell laptop running XP PRO. I use the laptop at work, where the IT Dept. has assigned static ip's to all clients. My ip config is as follows:
    IP address: 10 218 154 11
    Subnet: 255 255 255 0
    Default Gateway: 10 218 154 253

    Primary DNS: 24 92 228 12
    Secondary: 24 92 228 173

    So in order to be able to use my laptop at home I envisioned setting up my router's DHCP to something like: 10 218 154 100 to 10 218 154 254

    But then I'm not sure about the DNS. I would need the DNS to be the same as the default gateway? Right?
    So is there a way around this? Or another way to do this perhaps?

    I traced that IP address..belongs to Road Runner. Do you use RR at home? If so, should be fine with that...good reasoning.

    Or...get a netswitcher program...it's basically a network profile selection utility often used by laptop peeps that travel between different networks.

    Are you talking about the IP address of the DNS? Yes I do have RR at home. Not sure what they have at work, they don't tell us much.

    Yes, if work uses the following as their DNS
    Primary DNS: 24 92 228 12
    Secondary: 24 92 228 173

    ...those are RR DNS servers, according to http://ip-lookup.net/index.php

    So if you're in the same region/area as your office, you're probably in the same group of nodes as the office, and would be able to use those same DNS servers. You probably do use those same DNS servers..if you log into your router at home..look at it's status page in the web admin, you may find it's been handed the same DNS servers.

    Or...use one of the network profile software packages out there...Netswitcher is the big name amongst them, they've been around a while..I have some clients that use it.

    I recall stumbling across some free ones out there....you can probably find some looking around software sites like snapfiles.com or tucows.
