So i wanted to ask is there any way to make a laptop that is with windows 7 be able to take a static ip adress only for one specific network that is in the office and if the same laptop try to connect to other network to be able to get an adress automatically .

I hope that i wrote it clearly and you will be able to understand my question if not please tell me what should i discribe more.

Do you connect via wireless or Wired?

Also do you connect to the networks via different interfaces? For example you connect to the office using a wired connection but you use a wireless connection for everything else?

Many Thanks,
Josh

The user wants to connects only from the wireless interface.
The problem is that when i make it work for the office with the static ip i don't know how if its possible to make it connect with different settings for any other wireless networks.

Does your work have DHCP installed?

You may want to look into using the Alternate Configuration in order to pick a static IP address if your machine cannot get one automatically.

Please note that this tutorial works for Windows 7 as well:

IP Address - Enable Alternate Configuration

If your work has DHCP then your machine will take that over the alternate configured static IP address

Hope This Helps,
Josh
