 actually its up to the radius or router of the isp to supply an ip.
They can use a fixed ip for each useraccount (which is very nice) or
they can use a fixed ip per "peering point", in other words, one fixed
ip per telefonline. As you can not predict at which line your call will
be accepted, you get a "random/dynamic" ip-number from your point of
view as a dial-up-customer).

 And the third solution: The router requests an ip-number at a
radius-server. Most radius-Servers I know simply suggest the first free
number in the list. You can NACK that and thats fine :-)
