I assume the DHCP server is your wireless router?  You can probably 
configure it to be a name server and/or assign address reservations 
which simulates a static IP by issuing the same IP to a host every time 
(uses the MAC address of the host).  If you can make it a name server 
you can use the hostname.  If you use reservations you can use the IP.  
Maybe read the router's manual?
