Static IP or not?

Just got connected to PlusNet...I thought my IP was supposed to be static?

Or is the below, cut from my connection settings, not showing my static ip?

Phone Number from a BT Line N/A
Phone Number from a non-BT Line 0845 1400101
Login name riverbankway@plusdsl.net
Password ********
Authentication Method CHAP
Server type PPP
IP Address Server assigned

Thanks,

Simon.

Static IP or not?

Server Assigned as in the PlusNets server always assigns you an IP and it will assign you the same IP each time you connect. I.e. you don't have to setup the IP address youself.

This is perfectly normal and just a terminology thing. Server assigned does not mean dynamic or static, it means you will be given an IP when you login to plusnet's network.

If your using dial up with your 56k modem and the 0845 number
then your IP will be dynamic which means it will change every time
you dial in

people using ADSL will have static IP`s

You actually get your same ADSL static ip when you dialup using the 0845, I have done this a few times during ADSL outages.

Yes, that is true. As long as your ADSL connection is inactive at the time (which it obviously would be during an outage), you can use your ADSL username (name@plusdsl.net, name@plus.net, etc) and password to gain access to 56k pay-as-you-go and use your static IP.
