I think the answer is "it will stop you getting a tsnet error (6)".
That doesn't mean it will "fix" it. Most likely (as others have said in
more detail), it's a result of flaky or intermittent network connection
somewhere, making your DNS lookups fail incompletely. Using a static IP
will simply mean that no DNS lookup is needed - so your attempt to
transfer data will get started and likely fail in some other way because
of that flaky connection.
How (whether) that shows itself to the user is unpredictable :-)
