Good Day
I had a conversation with my ISP with regards to this.
In a non technical way it was described to me as follows
signal from their tower to my antenna has my wan ip address.
the box below the antenna takes the address and converts
it to 169.254.1.x and provides this address via dhcp.
So from there I will probably use a software router to create a
private LAN

Thanks for the heads up on all of this. I will not tell how much time I
have spent agonizing over this.

Thanks again
