Dynamic IP Addresses problem

I am new to Postgres and have just got the server side and PGAdmin set up on
my windows system.  I have the POSGRESQL.CONF tcpip_socket = true set to
allow TCP/IP traffic and have added the configuration to the PG_HBA file to
allow access to the user account running PGAdmin.  All worked well until I
discovered we are set up with dynamic IP addresses.  After rebooting my
machine the next day and getting a new IP address I can no longer connect
without modifying the address in the PG_HBA configuration file.  My question
is this:  Is there a way to mask the IP address in the configuration file so
that it is not dependent on a static address? ...or is there another way to
configure Postgres so that dynamic IP Addresses are not an issue when
connecting from windows machines?
Thank you,
