Unable to access SQL 2008 from Virtual PC

I have a Dell laptop with Windows 7 enterprise 64 bits, I am running Windows SQL server 2008 in that laptop.
In that laptop I am running to a Virtual PC with windows XP home.
When I am at the office I can connect correctly from the Virtual PC to my laptop SQL server 2008.
But when I am at home I CANNOT connect to the SQL server from inside the Virtual PC. It used to work correctly when the laptop was running windows XP pro.
I duoubt is a SQL configuration issue because as I said when working at the office I can do it correctly.
I am not sure if I am missing some network configuration for my home network.

TIA

MG

The laptop's IP address, and your virtual machine's network configuration (is it running on bridged or NAT)
