Does this solution require rebooting the machine between home and work? 
If the OP's needs are like mine, I never reboot the laptop.  I use
suspend-to-RAM and resume when moving between work and home.  A solution
involving rebooting is less than optimal.

I don't currently have the OP's problem right now, because dhcp handles
everything.
