Duplicate IP address



The boss in my company takes his laptop home on weekends. He uses
another network (not his own) which assigns an IP address
Our IP address range is and the printers IP addresss is (we have 3 printers). The printers are used by an old
hard programmed IP address so they cannot change. When my boss comes in
and hooks up his laptop, he gets a IP address error and causes printer
problems. I have to preform a ipconfig /renew to sort this out.
I have our DHCP leases on 1 day leases.

A previous post mentioned about a forced DHCP, but it was not a good
option for them. Can it be done?

At present I gave my boss a static IP with our DNS hoping that he
doesn't get a hiccup on the other network.
