well, there is also the fact that all the dynamic IP schemes
for DSL suck. most providers these days are offering PPPoE
which is a lot like a dialup connection in terms of the
ISP's level of control over the connection (it is a session
based connectivity protocol, i.e. your DSL has to "dial up"
with a username and password). DHCP is not so bad, unless
your DSL network is overbooked, in which case you can have
problems renewing leases (read: you can't access the
Internet because your ISP takes away your IP address and
won't return it or give you a new one). to me, avoiding all
of that hassle is worth a few extra bucks a month. my static
IP DSL is rock solid.
