Windows 7: two different ip schemes, two docking stations, ONE laptop

two different ip schemes, two docking stations, ONE laptop

Hi everyone,
I just purchase one laptop for a user that has two offices in different locations.
The two locations are on the same domain but have a different ip scheme, example; location A 192.168.40.xx and location B 192.168.50.xx, our network admin has set the network to be static, my problem really is, how can i set up one docking station to use one ip scheme and the other docking station to us another ip scheme, both docking stations are identical. I've set up a test environment with both docks next to each other and both on the network, every time I dock it uses the first ip I had assigned to the first docking station, even worse, when I un-dock and use the nic on the laptop it will still use the same ip, can I create different local area connections for each nic????
laptop:
dell e6420
docking station:
e-port plus port replicator

any input will be greatly appreciated

Hello,

Assign multiple static addresses on the docking station/NIC for both networks.

You will also need to add multiple default gateways.

A better way of doing this would be to enable DHCP on the networks. - This is upto your system admin though.

The link below should help. You can bind both IP's to a single NIC using the advanced TCP/ip settings. In your case it's two static IP's but the set up is nearly the same. I agree with Dave, in most cases simply using DHCP is much easier but I'm sure they have a reason for using static IP's in the first place.
How to enable DHCP and Static IP adress on the same NIC ?
