I am using bsnl broadband which provides dynamic ip address. Now what is the use of assigning a static ip internally..? Really cant understand the very use of it since the ISP provides dynamic ip.

I didn't understand what you are trying to say.The dynamic IP that BSNL assigns is a WAN IP (117.195.xxx.xxx)/(59.xxx.xxx.xxx)The static IP you are talking about is the LAN IP (192.168.xxx.xxx)Are you getting confused between WAN IP and LAN IP ?
