    I have a laptop that I need to set up user accounts for differant lans with differant workgroup names and ip addresses. I'm planning to set up user acct's with the separate ips and gateways. My problem is that as admin acct I set up a user and it either doesn't allow me to change the ip's or as admin I globally change those settings.
    Is there a workaround to this?
    When I log on to the limited acct I have no access to the network side of Xp.
    Thanks for any help.

    Thanks for the message lobos, I don't have any trouble with networking.
    The problem arises from setting differant user accts in windows with diff ip addy's.
    That's where my problem is.
