I have a broadband account with telecom nz abd my IP address changes several times a day. When it happens I lose connection for a few seconds. I have interleaving switched off (for gaming), could this be the problem?
Most ADSL connections use dynamic IP addresses. This means your IP will change every time your connection does.
You modem isn't dropping as a result in your IP change - it's your modem dropping the connection that is causing the IP to be renewed when the modem resync's itself.
Is this a new problem? Have you changed any phone wiring in your house or moved any phones? Do you have ADSL filters installed on all phones (and Sky if you have that) or a central ADSL filter?
