Re: [DSL] Seeking possibility switching from PPPoE to DHCP

Unfortunately, no. DHCP is not the same as a Static IP; DHCP is, like PPPoE, a Dynamic IP (meaning the IP can change, as you have noticed). Static IP is a different service with a higher cost. If you're interested in purchasing Static IP I can check if such is available in your area, but I can't switch you over without affecting anything else.

Thanks for the info, Well, I didn't mean to expect a real static IP from that, but the fact is that in DHCP mode, the server would cache my MAC address for a few hours I think...so unless I "release" the IP, my router would still get the same IP within a short period of time(like power cycling)..am not hosting a server or so, ..So I just wanna see if I can swith to DHCP for a poor man's solution lol~

Yeah... I checked, and unfortunately no, the equipment in your area's all set for PPPoE, not DHCP. Sorry!
