I have a bit of a predicament, where I use this software for managing traffic by IP address on my local network, and the other day I bought a Linksys AM300 to do half-bridging. The problem i have now is the NIC that I use for the WAN now changes whenever Xnet changes my IP address, and this software needs a static ip to work, so my question is this: How often do Xnet change our IP addresses?

Each time your router re-connects, you will highly likely get an new IP. Alternatively, you can get a static for $10 per month. Perhaps you should get you ADSL connection checked, maybe there is an issue there?




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

I was on the understanding that if you had special requirements you could just ask for a static IP, no charge. Has something changed?

Ive yet to find an ISP that jsut gives you free static IPS..... "Hi, I want a static so I can run my DC Hubs and torrent trackers" Laughing
If youre going to run something off your system, the ISP might as well make money off it ;)

There is a detailed thread here about why ISPs charge for static ips.

Ah, I see they have changed the T&C's regarding static IP's. I stand corrected, it is $10/pm.

I think with cable you have to have a static ip, thats how the service works. I configured a friends router and we had to ring the helpdesk for the static ip to use in the router config. I assume the TCL cable modem has some sort of half bridging also. Correct me if i am wrong (also going slightly off topic Surprised)

I've got two ADSL connections at the to houses I'm at, 1 xnet and the other is a maxnet connection. The xnet one changes each time the router is restarted and the maxnet one holds my IP for 15 minutes if I was to turn my router off. Because my router on the maxnet connection hardly ever goes down and comes back up in under a minute I've pretty much got a fairly static IP as long as I dont have a power outage . Of course I could get a FS/FS plan and then I get a free static IP with them.

Its just interesting how different ISP do things

It's interesting because i never did much research to see if my ip has changed recently, since posting my IP has been the same the whole time, and i assume it wil only change if it loses power, which is handier than it jsut randomly changing i suppose. Thanks for the feedback guys, much appreciated

NZ Wireless also have free Static IP with their service plus its uncapped. But I dont think its available everywhere.

This is correct. It will only change when you disconnect (or are disconnected)

The other thing that may be useful, if you log in to your Xnet account page, it shows your current IP. Useful if you are out & about and your IP has changed.
