    I have a question which made me curious. I am using ADSL2+ (RFC 1483 Bridged). Through DHCP my ISP is giving a pseudo-static IP. DHCP lease time is very long. IP changes only few times in several months. I changed router's MAC address - nothing. I was assigned the same IP. Maybe does anyone have an idea how do they assign IP (based on what)? I rebooted, changed MAC address of router/modem, but they still assign the same IP. I certainly know it's not static, but pseudo-static IP.

    Possibly your ISP (who?) may give you an IP via your ADSL logon details? these dont change, but as you have proved, you MAC can.
