My laptop has a series of "locations". I can switch from one to  
another just by selecting it's name and the Mac just changes it's  
connection dynamically. They are -

* At home via wifi with fixed local subnet IP address

* Via direct ethernet connection to ADSL modem and PPP

* Via serial dialup via the internal modem with PPP

* At my partner's place via wifi to her computer sharing her  
connection via NAT/DHCP

Sometimes it's too damn clever. When I have it set to be at home via  
wifi and start it up at my partner's place it somehow manages to  
latch onto her wifi signal and get a connection even though the ip  
address was supposed to be static. This is before I have told it too.
