This you have to establish with the provider...the ISP is the one that assign you an Ip address in both cases..and for to have a static Ip probably have to provide the Mac address for them ..and for the other option you have to just tell them that you want one ..that is not static and will actually change probably once a day or each time you connect (open ) the PC ..
If I were you ..and to make this as efficient is possible I will install a second network card in my computer ...and ask the ISP to get me a second line (in the same contract ) But with a dynamic Ip address. .this will provide you a quick switch from one to the other ..without being forced to change cables or anything else..and make your bulk mail work perfect when is connected to the static ..and be a moving target when you are on dynamic...and all you have to do is access one connection or the other from My network places in the computer ...and enable one and disable the other ...just a couple of clicks..
I can not see any other way ..by maybe using a router ..and set it with a large ip range ..and force it somehow to change the ip periodically ..and you will actually use the static Ip and settings in the wlan (router connection with the ISP... and have a dynamic on the internal ...network ...but Im not sure how can be done (depends on the router model) and probably its much complicated and expensive than the first one ...So ...call your provider for a dynamic second line ...get a second pci Lan card ..and go to it ..its the easiest way ..
also you can ask the ISP..if you can keep in working the bulk email ....and run a dynamic Ip from them ...in this case all the changes will be from the static to dynamic and problem is solved with no extra costs..cause the dynamic one is usually cheaper than the static..
if the ISP only provide the static IP ...keep it ...and make a second line on other provider and use them like I said with 2 LAN card s...in parallel..

What is the IP address for my Firestick?


The IP address of an item, unless you specifically assign it one, is done automatically by the router when it connects to the network. This address can be different each time the device connects depending upon what other devices are already connected.

IP Conflicts in a work place


An IP address conflict occurs when two computers on a LAN or the Internet have been assigned the same IP. IP conflicts between two computers normally render either one or both of them unusable for network operations.

How IP Address Conflicts Happen

Two computers can acquire conflicting IP addresses in any of several ways:

· A system administrator assigns two computers on the LAN the same Static IP Address.

· A system administrator assigns a computer a static IP address within the local network's DHCP range (dynamic IP range), and the same address is automatically assigned by the LAN DHCP server.

· A malfunction in the network's DHCP server allows the same dynamic address to automatically be assigned to multiple computers.

· An ISP accidentally assigns two customers the same IP address (either statically or dynamically).

· A mobile computer is put into standby / hibernate mode and then awakened later.

Note that other forms of IP conflicts can also occur on a network. For example, one computer may experience an IP address conflict with itself if that computer is configured with multiple Network Adapters. System administrators may also create IP conflicts by accidentally connecting two ports of a network switch or router to each other.

Recognizing IP Address Conflicts

On most Microsoft Windows computers, if you attempt to set a fixed (static) IP address that is already active on the local network, you will receive the following pop-up error message:

The static IP address that was just configured is already in use on the network. Please reconfigure a different IP address.

On newer Microsoft Windows computers having dynamic IP conflicts, you should receive a balloon error message in the Taskbar as soon as the operating system detects the issue:

There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network.

Sometimes, especially on older Windows computers, a message similar to the following may instead appear in a pop-up window:

The system has detected a conflict for IP address...

On Mac or Linux computers, a similar message will normally appear on screen.

Resolving IP Address Conflicts

Try the following remedies for IP conflicts:

1. For networks where IP addresses are fixed (statically assigned), ensure each local host is configured with a unique IP address.

2. If your computer has a dynamically assigned address, releasing and renewing its IP address can workaround IP address conflicts.
3. If your home router is believed to have a faulty DHCP server causing IP conflicts on the home network, upgrading the router firmware may resolve this problem.

Change ip address


Is your ip is static or dynamic?If it is dynamic,then you have to reset your modem or else if it is static,then ask your ISP to change your ip.To know your network ip address visit Ip-Details.com .

Diffrent between Dynamic&static ip address


Static IP address is usually a single IP address provided by the ISP to you, which can be configured so that you can run a web server (host web sites etc), or access your home computer from any where in the world ( your computer and internet should be on ).

Dynamic IP address is usually IP address provided by the ISP to your DSL modem / computer (for dialup modems) for that internet session, next day or next time you connect the IP address will be a different one. (usually home internet connections are Dynamic IP based.

In a typical home environment if you have one wireless adaptor and planning for a wireless repeater its better to configure dynamic IP address in the repeater (so that you repeater will acquire IP address from the wireless adaptor)

Need to renew ip address for my emachine T3516


just right click on your local connection on the desktop by the clock and click on "repair". this should clear the cache and renew the IP addy and DNS for yur connection. OR

Follow these steps to quickly release and/or renew the Internet Protocol (IP) address of a computer running Windows XP, Windows 2000, or Windows NT. Here's How:
  1. Click the Start menu button on the Windows taskbar.
  2. Click Run... on this menu.
  3. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'cmd' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears. A command prompt window appears on the screen.
  4. Type 'ipconfig' (without the quotes) to view the status of the computer's IP address(es).
  5. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'ipconfig /release' to let go of the address.
  6. Type 'ipconfig /renew' to obtain a new IP address (whether or not the computer is holding a current address).
Tips:
  1. If it is not necessary to view the current IP addresses on a computer, simply type 'ipconfig /release' or 'ipconfig /renew' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears in Step 3.

  2. To bring a computer back onto the network after moving it to a different location, or experiencing an unexpected outage, first release, then renew the IP address. Computers on DHCP networks often (but not always) re-establish network connectivity automatically

Dynamic IP address


Dynamic ipaddress - is temporary, the ip changes when you disconnect for example.

Normal, or static ip - It's the same address from day to day.

I cant open an ip address for an assigned webpage.


There are several private address ranges that may be affecting the operations you are attempting to perform see table

IP Address Ranges Reserved for Private Use
Class Networks A 10.0.0.0 through 10.255.255.255 B 172.16.0.0 through 172.31.0.0 C 192.168.0.0 through 192.168.255.0
All addresses in this range in your network are only directly addressable to machines within your network at most by default. The router to your ISP and the internet as a whole maps these addresses onto the IP address assigned statically or dynamically by your ISP to the WAN side of your router using an address translation (NAT) service. So where you are attempting to connect to this device from may be significant. You may need to review your setup guide to see if it references router configuration requirements to support access to the Web_xpander port from devices not attached to your internal network. If you have multiple internal networks (address ranges and not devices) this could also be an issue.

Secondly -- does the Setup software for the device tell you the IP address assuming it is dynamically assigned. Otherwise how would you know what the address is. Static assignment could resolve that issue however you must understand your network to assign your own address. Given a theoretical network where the router gateway is 192.169.0.1 and the network mask is 255.255.255.0 the valid network addresses are 192.168.1.0 - 192.168.1.255. A router or other device supporting DHCP address assignment reserves another range such as 192.168.0.100 for 50 leases (ending at 192.168.0.149) for dynamic assignment to requesting network adapters. Ignoring the 0 and 255 address this leaves open to the network administrator (you in your home) the possibility of assigning static IP address in the ranges of say 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.99 and 192.168.0.150 - 192.168.0.254 or so. You as well as the DHCP server are required to assure that there are no duplicate IP addresses assigned on your network. So statically assigning 192.168.0.100 (which is DHCP assignable in our case) could and would most likely result in duplicate addressing and network problems.
