One possible fix for internet connections that drop out
Authored by: Auricchio on Jul 02, '08 01:15:09PM

Using static IP or DHCP has nothing to do with this.

- The ISP provides DNS addresses to the router, assuming the usual dynamic-IP ISP connection. (If you buy a static-IP connection, you're told what DNS addresses to configure into the router.)

- If the computer uses DHCP, the router passes those DNS addresses to the computer.

- If the computer uses static IP, the computer can simply forward all lookups to the router/gateway address. If you've entered some DNS addresses, the computer uses them.
