Sticky Login across IPs

So I have a feeling that this isn't going to be possible with Nova 2's session method, but I figured I'd ask the question anyway.

The problem I am having lately is that when I'm at work, my PC's external IP address changes very often. I think it's more likely that we just have a range of external IP addresses, and we get load balanced onto them at random, rather than actually being assigned an IP in any way which auto-rotates. What that ultimately means is that I get logged off of Nova on an extremely regular basis while at work. This usually results in the following:

  • Write a tag or PM
  • Hit save/send
  • Get told I'm not logged in
  • Open a new tab to log back in
  • Press 'back' on the initial tab to save myself having to write everything out again
  • Hit save/send
  • Rinse and repeat

It happens often enough that I've started pre-empting it by opening a new tab before I hit save/send to re-log in first.

My question is; is there any way to make Nova recognise that I am the same user, independently of my IP address? Through a cookie that holds my session ID maybe?
