Hey bigpipe, you may be busy, but a gentle poke from me. 

 

 

 

I sent an email early Thursday, having been switched to UFB (all good! love the Elite) I requested my static IP to be applied to the connection.

 

Please can this be action?

 

regards

 

Luke

If you reboot your router does the IP it gets change? If not, you've found the static IP.

Or is it a public IP - most dynamic BP IPs will be CG-NAT

rebooted router and got an IP.

 

Jumped on to google: whats my IP. They matched so assumed that was my new static.

 

If it was the CG-NAT one they would have been different.

Reboot your router again and check if it has changed, if not, that might be your static.

 

 

 

Even so, It's no guarantee, I've often received the same IP after a router reboot and I'm on a dynamic IP. Best to email bigpipe and ask if it's applied.

If the IP address your router has on its WAN interface starts with 100.x.x.x it's CGNAT. If it starts with anything else and remains the same after a reboot, it's static.

 

What Google says your IP is and the IP your router has from Bigpipe will not necessarily be the same, due to CGNAT.
