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 :-)
