    What is the difference between the LAN IP address and the internet IP address assigned by the ISP?
    Is the Isp IP address always dynamic or can it be static? Is there and advantage to either?
    Is there and advantage to having a static LAN IP address?
    I have a Hawking HWR54G Router. I can't seem to find the range of DHCP server address pool .

    "What is the difference between the LAN IP address and the internet IP address assigned by the ISP?"

    The former is private and the latter is public.

    "Is the Isp IP address always dynamic or can it be static?"

    Can be static.

    "Is there and advantage to either?"

    Yes, if you want your public IP address to change sometimes, or if you want it to never change.

    "Is there and advantage to having a static LAN IP address?"

    Yes, for port forwarding and, IMO, for network printers or storage devices.
