... like a 3G dongle or whatever? What does the DHCP server give it an IP based on? And, isn't this insecure? Thanks....

Do linux boxes send MAC addrs to the net for a USB dongle?
And, isn't this insecure?

No and no.
The 3G dongle talks to the servers at the phone company's end, and it's a closed loop connection point-to-point. Any IP address negotiation does not go out to the Internet.Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/
