Use the 2 servers that your ISP provides. Don't use the router IP.

Look at your firewalls.

You can not switch locations when using Static IPs unless you have two network cards, one set with your static information and one set to use DHCP. Talk to your network guy at work he may be able to help or he may have it setup this way on purpose so you don't use your computer outside of work.

Same answer. You will not be able to do this without having two NICs. The DNS server is probably only available to your work's Subnet and not to the public. You could use a DNS server that is available to both your work and home but most ISPs will block these for security reasons. Here are some public DNSs that you can try...

Again talk to your network guy. He has probably on set them up to work inside your network and not available to the Public. Most ISP DNSs are setup this way. I can not use a COX DNS on a Comcast or Qwest network. This is a good thing because you don't want every one on the internet accessing your DNS.

The main question is why do you have a static DNS but not a Static IP. This is the only reason you would want a static DNS. Just set it to automatic and let DHCP take care of the rest.

we also have a vpn client installed on the laptop and a batch file for map drive this is why we set the dns to look at the 192.168.100.3 first so the script and map will work .

Then put your DNS references in your HOST file. This is how I have my VPN Telecommuters setup so that they can use their laptops at hotels. Just go into...

c:\windows\systems 32\drivers\etc\

Open the HOST file in notepad and insert all of your server Names and IPs. Then you can set your DNS to Automatic and it will still be able to resolve the FQDN without the work DNS.

Also you may have to turn on Split Tunnelig on your VPN Combiner. I don't know if you are connecting the VPN before you go on the internet or not but if you are you may not be able to get to the internet with out it.

I think you have enough tools here to solve the problem and it is time to allow others to try and help you with the problem.
