We are on a snap UFB connection with fritzbox, and IP phone line service.

Is it possible to disable the internet, but leave telephony functions working? 

But, really need the internet side of things to be disabled, such that we do not have a public internet ip address. 

I'm guessing it is not possible but a bit desperate.

If you didn't have internet or a public IP your phone wouldn't work.

I was hoping there was some kind of protocol between the fritzbox / ONT / cabinet which somehow separated the bandwidth for the phone, from the internet. 

Need to disable the internet but not the phone.

What are you trying to achieve? Would switching off the WiFi and unplugging everything do?

There is - it's called 802.1p tagging.

You might need to actually explain what you're trying to achieve that can't simply be achieved by disabling WiFi and unplugging Ethernet ports?

If you're trying to stop somebody using the internet, then (as suggested earlier) disable WiFi.
To prevent the ethernet ports being used, change the "standard" profile "period" to be "Never".
Then any devices connected to the Fritzbox directly will fail to work as well.

We had a couple of ddos attacks in Feb.  In the 12 years of being connected this is the first time we've been hit with this.

I 'guessed' it was the kids online gaming, the 6 year old may have annoyed someone on minecraft. 

So, minecraft is banned in the house.   But, I let them use it a couple of weeks back for a couple of hours and I made sure that they behaved online. 

Was on holiday last week, snap phoned and said we were targeted by a ddos attack and our connection will be terminated if it happens once more.

I have little idea how I'm being targeted outside the minecraft theory. Although it is infrequent, 5 months since the last attack but too frequent for snap.

So I was wondering if i could disable the internet when not needed, without affecting the voip phone.

Wouldn't that completely lock me out of the fritzbox? I couldn't easily reverse this.

Seems a little odd that Snap would threaten to terminate your service for being the target of a DDOS attack, it's hardly under your control is it?

I know, this has been absolutely a nightmare. 

They are just protecting other users on their network i guess. It would be nice if they had a better way to block these things though.

Very interesting

As I have been hit with 2 DDOS attacks so far this month myself. I only found out about them after I phoned Snap to find out why I couldn't access any international websites. They weren't very happy with me. And I had to phone them twice before they would say that it was because of DDOS attacks.

Only 1 person in the house who plays online games. Who plays on a private server. And both attacks happened while he was at work.

I switched off the lounge computer that is always on just in case there was some junk residing on it. Presumably no more DDOS attacks as international websites are still working.

There is a difference between being the target of a DDOS attack, and being one of the 'bots' perpetrating the attack. You can't be blamed for the first (you're the victim) but you can be blamed for the second as it probably means your PC(s) are compromised with malware under control of whoever is organizing the DDOS attack. Time to break out the antivirus/antimalware/etc software.
