Can I change network settings on the fly?

An admin works in two different offices in the same company. Each office has its own domain. He wants to know if there's an easier way than changing network IDs at each office.

I work with a laptop between two offices, of the same company. Each office has its own domain and I've been changing network IDs at each office. Is there a more efficient way to do this? (I need access to network drives and shared files at each location.)
There's a program called NetSwitcher that automates the process of changing network IDs. While it was mainly designed to allow people to change network settings on the fly, it can also change many other system settings without needing a reboot. It's free for evaluation and a single license costs about $20.
