Are you sure that its not getting an IP address from the DSL modem?
Unplugging for a short time may not be enough time for the lease to expire
which could be the case when the network dies preventing the Myth box from
getting a new (or refreshing the old) address.

You will only be using a static IP address if you specifically configured
it that way - it won't have happened by accident :)
