The ISP I use, xFinity, charges $100/month (arm and a leg) to provide me with a static IP for my home Windows network, specifically a domain controller.  I'm wondering if there's a workaround.  Could I connect a switch to their router that would function as a DHCP server and serve out a static IP address to my Windows domain controller?  Bottom line?  I'm trying to save $$$.
