It's whether the IP address on the WAN interface is fixed. Some service
providers give you a permanent address, others assign you one using DHCP or
something like it. Those addresses aren't guaranteed to remain the same
across DHCP lease timeouts.

If the WAN address changes on the fly, the remote end can't do the
authentication it needs to do for the key exchange.
