Curiosity: I didn't get my IP!

I have a static IP as I run my own email server and for two years or so I have religiously been given my correct IP via DHCP. But today, that didn't happen. Instead of my usual IP and DNS received, I got this:

IP: 81.152.147.200
Gateway: 217.47.33.138
DNS: 194.74.65.98 & 193.113.211.125

The IP is owned by BT. A quick disconnect/reconnect and all was fine, but I would like to know what caused it. As of yesterday I have been running a beta firmware upgrade on my router - I hope it hasn't broken anything! :?

This occurs after so many unsucesful authentication errors, when there are problems or maintenance on the BT network.

Its happened to a few people lately. The usenet groups have people listing it too.

It happened to me last week too.
