What is going on????

I noticed at work today the my home connection went down about midday, and has stayed down since. I got home to find that my router has picked up the following ip address and gateway (and keeps it after a power cycle):

IP Address 87.112.41.119
Network Type PPPoA
IP Subnet Mask 255.255.255.255
Gateway IP Address 195.166.128.87

No wonder it isn't working!!!Huh? as not only isn't it my ip, but the gateway doesn't match.

I have just dialed up, and I have been given the correct ip address (and gateway). I am about to log a new call, but seeing as I have been waiting 2 days for an update to my other call I don't hold much hope of being back on line anytime soon.

This is getting beyond a joke now.

Reboot the router, incorrect IP's were given out earier today, the reboot should fix it.

Thanks for that henshawm, working now.

The first thing I did do when I noticed was pull the power out the back of the router, wait, and then put it back in, but that didn't solve it.

However I have just switched the router back on (after being off for 20 mins or so) and it has picked up the right address again.

I did have a look and couldn't see any mention of problems. Was an announcement made?

Hi,

I posted an update a little earlier about this

if anyone else is still seeing the wrong IP then a power down should fix it.
