Hey Rottweiler, Welcome to G2G
A static IP address should not effect your web connection. Web sites should not be assigning you an IP address, this is done by your ISP. If you have a STATIC IP address, it is an address that would have been given to you by your ISP and will not ever change. Most ISPs use DYNAMIC addresses, meaning they are assigned by a DHCP server when you log onto your ISP's network. A dynamic IP address may stay the same for a period of time - determined by the LEASE time, which is determined by the DHCP server.
If your web surfing continues to be impacted, please visit the malware forum in my signature. There may be some things going on with your computer that can have the same effects that you describe.
