Default Getting dynamic ip to be static??

Ok, as some of you might already know, i am trying to set up a server on my pc. The little problem is that my ip address is dynamic. As long i i stay connected, the ip will not change, but when i get disconnected, and reconnect, the ip changes. I have tried changing the settings in router from dynamic pppoe to static pppoe, but this did not change anything, when i got disconnected, then reconnected, the IP had changed.

If i cant get a static Ip without paying extra money, what are the alternative methods for setting up aserver on a dynamic ip?

there is software out there that will update anything that depends on your ip with ur new ip address each time it changes, all happens automatically, i'll try to find out where i found that info if this is what ur looking for, my mate uses it for gaming servers and teamspeak stuff

only your ISP can give you a static IP, sometimes it costs extra for that service.

Damn that's expensive, you might want to stick with no-ip or dyndns.org. You can still use your own domain name I'm sure, but why bother spending more money? I say go the cheapest route, free
