Re-visit IP address is based in US.

The IP address allocated to me belong to Plusnet in El Segundo, United States.  Is there a way to force a

local UK IP? I tried to switch off - on the router a couple of times but no luck.

Did you leave ir switched off for a couple of hours before reconnecting? You need someone else to pick up your existing IP address before you will be allocated another.

Baldrick1, Thanks for your speedy response. Yes, I have left my router switched off for a couple of hours. I note the IP (146.200.190.142) before switching off and after switching on (146.200.195.117). It is on a different subnet but still in the USA. I have been trying this for a few weeks now. I'll wait to see for responses and then escalate to Plusnet to investigate.

You might like to have a read of this IP addresses not UK - Can customers please report any problems here

Also for a one off payment of £5 you can get a static IP address.
