I would ask would a static ip really be able to allow the machines to reach the outer network?

Why not?  As long as the outer fixed IP is routable which it would be.

OTOH dyndns.org and others provide a way to tell the outside world what your current IP is. These services are free for personal use.

I do most of what you are doing.

    John ....

     I'm also a qwest dsl user and did a fair amount of net searching
     several months back looking for a similar solution ....

     The best I remember now from those searches at the time
     is that the path of least resistance and headache might be
     to pay qwest a few extra $$$ per month for a static ip ....

     Personlly, I gave up on it and as yet haven't bought
     any static ips from qwest ....
