I don't know about your provider, but my DSL connection is through
Telus, and even though the dynamic IP address might change the hostname
is static (xxxxxxxxx.bc.hsia.telus.net). You might want to check if this
is so for you. If you do a reverse lookup on your IP address and the
hostname returned does not contain the IP address it might be true for
you as well.
