Ya betcha. This is now down to about once per month, but less would be
nicer. I don't have to do anything but power-cycle their @#$!! "gateway",
however.

Why do you run 'pump'? With Telocity I have a static IP, and the DNS,
gateway, etc. don't change. Run 'My Connection' on their web server to see
the setup. You should just be able to just set up the connection manually,
and use it when it comes back.

Similarly a DSL router/firewall could get the DHCP setup on its own
behalf, while serving you an unchanging view - statically or dynamically.
(Actually that's my setup, except I told the router its static setup.)
