They don't. You have to tell them. I had a tech come out to check the
when I had a problem and he saw that I had networked computers and that
was running multiple OS's. He informed me that I could keep my ipaddr.
also sent out letters awhile back stating that they wanted everyone
windows to start using dhcp but if you were using something different
you could register yourself somewhere on their website. It doesn't
mean that my ipaddr won't change as they can do that at any time, just
hopefully they'll tell me when/if they do. ;-)
