    Know someone who wants to set up two clients coming off a server (via
    wireless NICs). This server will be attached to a cable modem and the
    problem is he was told that since he doesn't have a static IP that the
    clients will eventually come up with unable to connect when browsing
    Internet. They said its impossible for these clients to stay on unless he
    purchases a perm. IP address for 79.00 /month. Any ideas out there? Also
    if you can recommend a Cisco router or similar device that will work around
    this. Doesn't have a lot of money since its for home. Thanks for any
    input.

    It isn't clear to me whether this is outgoing only connections
    (e.g., normal www surfing and email), or if you need to be able to
    have incoming connections to the clients (e.g., netmeeting, or if the
    clients are running servers... multiplayer games perhaps?.)

    If all the connections are outgoing then that's either completely wrong
    or they were talking about some less than obvious issue.

    If all the connections are outgoing, then as long as the server is doing
    PAT (port address translation), you don't need anything more. Standard
    Microsoft "connection sharing" for example would be enough.

    My IP address at home changes at least once a week. I barely notice
    except when I want to connect back to my home machine from outside.

    Yes, all they will do is connect for www and e-mail. I believe he will also
    have a shared printer coming off the router (might be via print server).
    But to answer your question yes it is for outgoing
