laptop in domain at work, ad hoc at home

Guest

But the network setup wizard says: "The wizard has detected that this
computer belongs to a domain. Therefore, you cannot use this wizard to set
up a network."

Is it possible for me to work on the domain by day and use a shared ADSL
connection on a wireless peer-to-peer at night without reconfiguring my whole
setup every time I switch ?

At this point I can get wireless connectivity. The ICS machine at
192.168.0.1 can be pinged from my machine. The ICS machine cannot ping my
machine. ICS machine is on the internet with a connected, shared, firewalled
ADSL connection. Despite ping I get zero internet. The network setup wizard
runs fine on the ICS machine, but reports the above (from which I can only
cancel) on my machine. ICS machine running XP home SP2 and I'm on XP Pro
SP2, with a centrino machine with all network drivers built in and running
smoothly.

All other available help suggests the network setup wizard will solve all my
troubles...so now it's "help me community support, you're my only hope...".
