I am new to telecom. I was connected this Tuesday and I have got one of the free Thomson wireless devices on an ADSL 2+ connection
I am on the Big Time plan which seems to work quite.
I am not an excessive downloader with torrents and have only done one item.(just to try it out). I expect I will have my moments!
What I have noticed is that my connection seems to reset once a day during the night. This issues me with a new IP address which is a pain in the A... when I want to have a manually configured internet connection. i.e I have to manually update it each day to the new IP.
Two main questions
1. Is it common that the connection should reset each day? Could it be the router?
2. If it does reset daily do I get a new IP address each time? If I want the same IP address is that a static IP? does that cost?
Thanks for any advise
