It appears the applications you're referring to - Office, Acrobat, Photoshop, etc. have been installed to your Office server and that's where their main files are kept. You access them OK when using your Office network but when not on the network, you can't. That's normal. (Airport or ethernet has nothing to do with the problem.)

Unless you have a full separate independent install of all those applications on your MacBook and the settings for them are on the MacBook, that problem will occur.

The best way to set that up is to maintain two different log in identities on the MacBook. One for when you're in the office and on their network, the other when you're out in the field. That means the apps will have to be installed again using the "away from the office" log in.

Regards.
