Kodiack:BarTender: You should never change anything on the router when any ISP enables static IP.
Leave your end as it was before and just ask 2D to enable the Static IP. Then the session will drop and come back with the static.
That's exactly what I thought. I did try again last night, but each and every time they would attempt to add the static IP, the connection would drop and not return until the static IP was removed from the account.
Sounds like 2D need to sort their end out.
Every ISP will work the same either PPPoE or IPoE and then the ISP will allocate you a Dynamic or Static IP dynamically.
