Is there an advantage to a static IP address vs. a Dynamic IP address? I recently upgraded the modem and noticed for the router a Static or Dynamic option. 

Thanks for any advice ~

Not for usual home user. You don't get to choose static IP option unless you pay extra for it.
Option for static or dynamic IP was always available in routers.
