Windows – Static IP addr for just a particular access point in Vista

ip addressstatic-ipwindows-vista

I want to give my brother-in-law's machine a static IP address when he connects to his wireless access point at home using Vista. When I do, though, it changes it universally, and it breaks him connecting at work. I can't seem to limit it to that particular connection.

On XP this was relatively easy, but Vista seems to be different.

Any help here?
