I'm back home again now.

My apologies, I seem to have given the wrong impression. The DNS URL 
given to all the machines on the network is the (fixed) address of the 
router (192.168.123.254 for my router). All the machines have fixed 
LAN addresses. I assume the Virgin Media server converses with the 
router using DHCP.
