When one of our employee visits a different network from us in that network(which i don't know what policy the ITs have) he always gets a static ip, subnet, gateway, dns. I asked him if anybody maybe is doing changes on his laptop and  he told me nobody touching it. This causes problems because every time he comes back to our network he cant access it because of the static ip. In our network we get dhcp from cisco devices (which i am not the one supporting them).

How it is possible to have a static ip with out doing any changes locally on that laptop? How can i help fix this issue that is happening every time.

Sounds like a script is loaded to anything that attaches to their network.

Is it happening on a wired or wireless NIC?

If it is a script, on the other network, maybe you can do the same thing. It doesn't have to give the NIC a static IP since you use DHCP. It can be what's called a reserved lease, in the DHCP range.

donoli thanks for the info. Not sure exactly how i can do that. i guess i can forward this to the cisco guys that handle the dhcp and maybe able to setup it. If it doesnt work in this case maybe if on the other network he gets static ip i can setup also alternative static ip which points to hour network when he is here? I guess i will have to test and see if its possible to work that way.
