Right kid, but as you said, most good ones will keep the same IP through a pretty generous IP lease time. I have come across the opposite problem more often, trying to FORCE an IP change. Had to do that to the router one time, real pain, had to fake a MAC address on the router... luckily the Linksys allows that.

well if this will be of any help to anyone, my router is a EE400-R BroadBand Router made by......um....GigaFast? GigaFast Ethernet (i think) is what they are called. Their companys name is something like Indiana Technology.com? er something. But i can never call their tech support because they never answer their fone lol.

parakleet, you're lucky if that's all it takes. You must be on DSL as well then, as cable tends to have a longer IP lease time, and there is no 'dial-in' required, so the cable-modem is always on. Even power cycling the cable modem wont release the IP in most cases, as the MAC address finds it's own lease. My ISP has a 1 week IP lease time, but I have had the same IP for over 2 yrs now :D
