I disagree, I find static IP's to be very effective If you have a properly administered network, if you have kids or ever do you will understand, I decided to use static IP's for that very reason, I now have TOTAL control of my network, within my router I can set who/what has internet access and for how long, in my case for my kids laptops/phones etc. I have it set so that the internet access is turned off @ midnight and does not enable access until 9am, this way my kids cant stay on the internet all night long and this can only be done providing that they have the exact same IP address every time (Static IP's)..,the other equipment on my network such as my laptops, servers and iPad have total access all the time (no the kids cant access them because of password protection and power on password protection).. and my router is password protected also..with dynamic Ip's you get assigned the next available IP address and virtually have no control over it


PS I also have my printers protected so that they cant waste all my ink on stupid printouts...kids tend to want a printout of EVERYTHING
