LMAO, right from the mouth of my fine installer. I gave him 10's on the phone survey too. He has worked for Mastec two years now. I did inform him that he is wrong. Im happy my attic stairs were spared some extreme weight.

My installer (Multiband) and with 6 years on the job said I could not use the wired ethernet, I had to use WI-FI, using the wired connection will make it burn up. Gotta love the weird things they come up with.

I'll bet in the OP's case Mastec forbids installers to assign static IPs (which should be the case), and the installer assumed that applied to customers as well.
I say that should be the case because a well-intentioned installer could either choose a conflicting IP or one inside the router's DHCP range and cause all sorts of home network problems for a non-technical customer.
