I have a dell inspiron laptop running winxp. When I take the laptop home a
connect it to my cable modem, I am assigned an ip address by DHCP. However,
at work I have been given a static ip address. So, every time I go from place
to place, I must change the network information. Is there any way that I can
set up two local area connections and just enable the one that I am using at
that time? Any help would be appriciated.

Yes, use the alternate network configuration feature - See:
