no, you would need to get the Business SOHO product to get a static IP

I know I've had the same IP for forever and a day it seems, but regardless I use a dynamic dns service anyways so it follows my IP and I also don't have to remember my IP.

They are smoking some serious ganja to be offering those speeds at those prices!

you're pretty much static unless you're on a node with limited ip pool.
even if your ip hasn't changed in eons, cox won't give you reverse dns auth. you'll need soho or biz.

You know you can set your router (if it has the feature) to auto-update your dynamic DNS service with your current IP address.

Yep, been doing that for years. I use it quite a bit with the OpenVPN connection running.
