Dynamic Addressing

My internet provider has dynamic addressing. That is, each time I
log on I get a new IP assigned. I'm able to use video on reflectors by using
my default gateway address, but I'm not sure if that would work for a
one-on-one. If I list my assigned IP in my host file, I can't receive video.

Does anyone know what the best way to handle this? My provider says
the only way I can get a permanent, fixed IP through them is by getting a
leased line for five times what I currently pay monthly.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Also, I don't really know anyone using CUSM, but if I get the IP
question answered, I would like to do a one-on-one to fine tune my
performance and transmission settings. If anyone would be willing, please
let me know.---Gary
