You won't necessarily need to use a fixed IP address. Because of the problems with bonjour (and there are many), we built a quick & dirty UDP broadcast scheme that CC uses to find calibre in addition to bonjour. This was released around a month ago, and immediately the CC connection problems plummeted. The success of this scheme is why I am willing to make bonjour failure non-fatal.

The 'non-fatal bonjour error' fix is in calibre's 'trunk', available now if you run from source.
