Well Jeff, I'm not trolling for a dispute :)
I agree that it would be better otherwise. I note that some posters say
that it is in fact different...so we have some question even about the
facts, or if all versions of the radio are the same.
Ten Tec....you listening ? Care to straighten out the facts ?
In any case I said it was trivial because DHCP served devices (like most
PC's) will get themselves a new address just by being power cycled. And
then, changing a fixed IP address on a computer is only a few mouse clicks,
as you already know.
Perhaps "trivial" was too strong a term, but a few mouse clicks cannot at
least be called difficult.
I have some 35 users on my system, most of them wireless, located up to a
mile away. We have outdoor antennas and amplifiers. We change address
blocks pretty much weekly, as one of several security measures and to help
keep people from pirating our bandwidth.
As you said, a matter of perspective.
