    Here is the solution. at leaset in this case:

    Her network at work uses user assigned IP addresses. It was simply a matter taking out the addresses and enabling the machine to automatically find the IP address. But when she goes back to work we will have to put the hard addresses back into it.

    So simple, and yet so maddening!

    Thanks guys.

      You're describing DHCP (automatic IP address assignment). I'd be surprised if your Wife's office doesn't also have DHCP -- IT guys haven't used static IP addresses in a long time.

      But in any case, the Win7 network profiles let you change the network settings for each location. So you can have the laptop set for DHCP for the "Home" profile, and static IP's (if that's what you really want) for the "Work" profile.

      There's also several excellent freeware programs to do this. One is "AutoProxy":
