Oh, that.  Yeah, sure. I had the same problem.  I just decided to shut 
down (and restart from scratch) my notebook between leaving the meeting 
room and entering my room (and vice versa).  Takes only ~ 15 seconds, so 
it's no big deal.

My (granted, 20 year old) intuition about TCP/IP protocols is that 
otherwise, somehow something cached in your network protocol stack in 
the OS kernel gets "reused" when you really don't want it to.
