Wireless networking, domain and workgroup settings

  SDJ 10:04 20 Sep 2004

I have a laptop which when at workis connected to a domain.
I want to connect it via an ad-hoc connection to my desktop when at home.

I tried to do this yesterday with no joy, I couldnt use the "create home network" facility as I was told this couldnt happen as my machine was setup to a domain.

Will I have to change the settings every time I go home and then back to the office?

I also think I am having trouble with my zonealarm as even when i got rid of the domain and setup a home network I couldnt connect but i am trawlijng through the many threads already posted to see where I may have gone wrong.

Any suggestions will be most gratefully received,
