any reason why all the guides recommend giving a fixed address when flashing or otherwise?

Thanks

usually its just a pc connected to the dreambox using a ethernet crossover cable. No room for dhcp anywhere. so 10.0.0.10 on one and 10.0.0.97 on the other.
 
probably don't want the DHCP server to assign a new ip address mid session. unlikely yes, but good to be safe.

u generally ask for ur nic to use dhcp with an internet connection, if you have a static ip on ur dbox and pc it makes it easier for tutting. u could share your internet connection with ur dbox and Then go dhcp (on dbox), but really it's easier to set it manually yourself then you know where you are :)

do u have a prob connecting back to the internet after flashing? just set ur nic back to auto assign ip then disable/enable it if u have any probs
