Actually, I found that for Windows XP, it sometimes retains the network 
info. In some cases, I've had to help them manually switch networks. In 
and DOS box, ipconfig /release, ipconfig /renew usually brings up the 
current network. In Linux with network manager, you can usually switch 
networks easily, with some caveats. I've had some cases where I could 
not connect to my work network no matter what I did in software, but a 
reboot fixed it. (Actually, reloading the the driver might be part of 
the solution).
