Yep, all your assumptions are correct! I did in fact at some point try creating a lease for the em0 interface in "dhclient.conf", but I understand those leases are only used if the dhcp server is unavailable, and it never had any effect.

... But the dhcp server is in my router, so I followed your suggestion and created a static lease (which before I didn't know I could do), so now everything works - thanks a lot!!
