I'm asking here because we're eventually, through some sleight of hand,
going to try to use this to connect to our VPN server _through_ this Windows
workstation running a wireless broadband connection with a static IP
address. The static IP is assigned by the ISP - they've got that part

Does it matter if I leave the w/s set as a DHCP client or set it up for a
static IP and put this address in? So far as I can tell, it doesn't make
any difference.
