Re: Change IP Address

that depends on if it is static or dynamic ip on sign up if is is dynamic you can just turn off your modem and back on again or if it is from a router turn off and back on again

Re: Change IP Address

Hi jockwav,
Can't see a static IP address on your account (assuming it's that one you're talking about)? As such just dropping the PPP session (disconnecting via the router's interface) then reconnecting should get you a different IP.

Why would you want to do that anyway ?,  it's not like needing to change a phone number which receives excessive unwanted calls.

It might be a bit like that if your firewall were receiving excessive unwanted packets.

Re: Change IP Address

Correctly setting the Plusnet Broadband Firewall should minimize that potential problem, for most customers.
