Hi Mary! I really can relate as to how you feel about changing IP address whenever you are at home and at the office. It is just how things are. As you can see your TCP/IP settings in your PC, you cannot select or mark both configuration. If you check or select automatic the manual configuration will be greyed out and vice versa. Its just that our modems has its own settings that is configured by ISP's ( Internet Service Provider ), so computer settings should match the modem settings so that it will work for Internet. And also , as the sayings goes " One cannot serve two masters at the same time " .

There are ways to activate this two settings on a computer. A Static IP Address and a Dynamic settings that uses DHCP or automatic configuration.

However, doing a manual configuration is one of the solution. It's a bit technical and you need to familirized yourself with the settings used and the Static IP Address set by your office's configuration.

When at home, set the Local Area Connection to obtain IP Address automatically and whenever you are at work, set it to set IP Address manually.

The best way to set or activate these two settings is to install additional Network Interface Card. You will have then 2 Network adapter installed where 1 is set to obtain IP Address automatically and other Network Adapter is configured to Static IP Address.

Wherever you are, connect the ethernet cord to the specific network adapter slots and this should activate the settings needed to use for Internet.
