my ip is dynamic also, and I never have a problem.
though my isp seems to assign ips based on physical address and 
hardware, since it doesn't actually change very often. I'm literally 
hosting some free downloads using ip based links it's that rarely that 
this dynamic ip changes. :-) when it does, everything resets itself just 
when you configured your networking did you set it up for dhcp? or 
static? ( probably the latter from your question )
alter your networking to a dhcp protocol and it should clear up the issue.
