    Is it possible to assign a static IP for each network ?

    I posted this question on microsoft answers but seems like may be i could get better help here
    i have a situation here
    i'm using static IP for Network #1 which is
    but when i try joining another network let's say network #2 with a router address like i have to change network settings and use another static IP
    can't i just ask windows to use static IP when i try to connect to network #1 and when i connect to network #2 without having to manually configure it every time ?
    i know this seems a bit of nonsense question but i really have to use static IPs when connecting to those two particular networks
    thanks in advance

    Zaref what you really should do is figure out which base ip you want to use. For example then subnet the network so that computer 2, 3, 4, etc. Will share a different segment of the same network. Check out this youtube video (IP Addresses and Subnetting - YouTube) which will teach you more than you need to know about it. Then along with this read up on how subnets work in a business...I've read a couple that describe a company with accounting, shipping, corporate. Another option could be a proxy server, or a switch where all 3 computers are tied together though it.
