Same as a hotel. A router will assign an IP address to each PC based on the MAC address of the NIC in the PC. And it will not change.
I have regular internet and live in Los Angeles and in a few weeks time a friend is visiting from Europe... He asked if I had a Static IP Address since he works with servers etc. I know the internet connection I have gives me random IP addresses... and it seems to be too much trouble to get a business account in order to obtain a Static IP.
My question is this.... I've done a little research and from what I gather... if one doesn't turn off the computer or connection to the internet then the IP address remains the same. Is that true?
Is there a way I can get a Static IP address.... A friend of mine mentioned going to hotels... since most have a business office one can rent.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks for your time
