I am happy that your problem has been solved! It is possible for your laptop to have a static IP address at work which would not be correct at home so automatically configuring it may have solved the issue. Either way as long as the problems solved then I am happy

I will get the thread to marked as solved however please do not hesitate to respond back if you have any more queries regarding to this problem.
