It looks like just like you thought ... except I might add to it as follows
> PC <------------> FW/Router <----------> DSL Modem <---------> Internet
DHCP Client Fixed IP DHCP Client
IP by NIC MAC DHCP Server PPPOE

I agree ... note that the problem can be systematicly recreated by opening
port 80 on my FW.

on your system.
I don't believe that it is the FW/Router either. I believe it has more to do
with how my DSL modem times-out, thus forcing an IP change.

I don't know and I'm not sure I'm ready to find out yet either. It still may
be a configuration issue (and I'm going to look at that again right now,)
but the fact that it does "run and run" until I open it up (to the Internet)
