We are getting DSL internet through AT&T for the company I work for and we were asked if we need a static IP address or not. Normally it would not matter but we recently added a CISCO router so our employees could VPN in to one of our PCs. Now my question is "do we need a static IP address" since we have the CISCO router. Our employees have the CISCO VPN program on the computers and use a .pcf file for security access. I know that in the .pcf file it give the IP address assigned to this building/account. If the address is not static will the .pcf file not work if say we lose power and the IP address gets reset? I am just looking for any ideas.
On a side note what would be a good speed to have if employees need to periodically login. When the company last had DSL internet I had not set it up and nobody came remember what speeds they had.
