Windows 7: Static AND Dynamic IP?

Static AND Dynamic IP?

Is there a way that I can have Windows auto configure my IP settings, so that when I'm connected to my home network, it uses the static iP settings I have, but when I'm at school or anywhere else, switch back to dynamic? Normally I have to go into the settings and turn it on and off every time.

Its called alternative configuration. As long as you don't have a dhcp server at your house.

If you do have a dhcp server at your house you can setup a reservation on the dhcp server (router normally) to get the same ip address each time you connect.

Alternative configuration is in the ipv4 properties.
