Hi guys I have always been on a dynamic ip address and if for any reason the line went down my ip address would change, I have always noticed when on the prefix of 225.*.*.*.* I would always get great speed but if the prefix was 115 or 125 then the speed would be degraded.
As of a few days ago i noticed my ip address was 115.188.*.* , My speed has dropped from an average of 1.8mbps to 1.1mbps , I have tried over the past few days rebooting the router ect but now it seems I am stuck with a static ip address as its not changing when rebooting which I find very strange.

Any advice anybody could offer before I give them a ring ??

Opps I am on Telecom 500gig plan.

IP addresses no longer change or change very little these days. There is even a discussion about exactly the same thing, from the same ISP, from minutes ago (please check before posting). Nothing to see here, move along.

As for speeds, it would help if you could post the DSL stats from your modem.

Do you have a master spliter? Do you have a monitored alarm?

Your IP won't be the reason for your speeds.

Post your modem stats and roughly where you're located. I assume that these tests are done over a cabled connection? If they were wireless you will need to retest with an ethernet cable.


There are only two reasons for your slow speeds - you're either too far from a cabinet or exchange or your internal wiring in your home needs to be upgraded. Statistically speaking it's the latter.

Every home in NZ that has DSL needs a master filter installed if you want the best performance from your DSL broadband.

Man people are getting hung up on this sticky IP thing. Maybe ISPs can charge for dynamic ipv4 now instead of static lol.

Anyway, as mentioned thia is most certainly a wiring/line issue and has nothing what so ever to do with the sticky address you now have.

Hi there - can you confirm the new address is in the 225.*.*.* range? Could you please PM me your actual IP address and the DNS servers that you have been assigned. I can have a bit of a poke around.

 

Cheers - N

Also could you confirm whether you mean 1.8 MEGABYTES/sec down to to 1.1 Megabytes/sec, or is it megabits?

Cheers- N

Considering 225/8 is an IANA multicast block and virtually nothing would treat it as unicast routable, this would be rather fantastic.

Grin :-) I suspect he means 125... I couldn't find 225 in our ranges (for obvious reasons :-)
