What type of connection do I have?

  s99Raj 20:53 19 Aug 2007

I'm trying to setup a broadband wireless connection with ntlworld/VirginMedia and one of the first questions I get asked is what type of connection do I have?

The 4 options given are :
Static IP
Dynamic IP

How am I supposed to know the answer to this, let alon know what they mean? There's no help in the user guide or accompanying CD.

P.S. I've posted this in the Networking section too, but no one seems to be replying.

Your Connection if on a BT line is PPPoA, I know as I am on it

Thanks for that.
I don't have a BT line, but an ntl line so I probably have a Dynamic Address.
