DNS are ISP servers giving you your IP network address while surfing.

That ^ would be DHCP, DNS is Domain Name resolution, it maps IP address to real names like microsoft.com

You should not need to set that manually, whatever network you hook up the phone to should take care of that for you through DHCP.

Dhcp would be your local PC IP, your wan IP is given by the DNS server.

It's still DHCP, just from the modem to the router. In some cases, usually DSL and in all cases where you asked for a static IP from your ISP, you'd have an IP assigned to you directly, that that is still not a DNS function.

DNS just maps your IP to a "real" name, it does not assign that IP to you.

Look here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_Name_System no-where does it state that DNS actually assigns the IPs, it just maps them to a name.

The ISP has a DHCP server that they use, same as the one in the router. When you use a "release" or a "renew" command on the router's WAN port, it the same as giving your PC a "ipconfig /release or /renew" command. The modem actually acts as the DHCP server for your WAN port, and the modem gets it's configuration probably from a static IP that is setup for it so they can track and support the modem you have.

I don't use Wikipedia to get any real facts on anything and neither should you, you're smarter than that. So assigning a dynamic DNS does not have any desired stealthing effects, thanks.

I just linked wikipedia for the quote, not where I got info for what DNS does. We can look at this also http://www.comptechdoc.org/independent/networking/guide...

Dynamic DNS will not assign the IP, it just changes the database entry for the computer to update to whatever new IP it got. DNS works with IPs, it does not generate them for the clients to use.
