Did anyone else's Orcon UFB "static" IP address change this morning?  My router reconnected a couple of times around 02:26 and now I seem to be stuck with a different IP address (and therefore unable to connect to a whole bunch of servers which only have my previous IP address whitelisted).

Have you contacted Orcon to check with them? Were you also paying for a Static IP?

Yes to both, but being a lowly home user I can only wait and hope someone responds soon after they get into the office later this morning...
