The normal reason for a BQM failing is a change of IP address, but I thought I was on a static one.
Looking at my speed test results I clearly am not. Mine is IPv6 and has been changing frequently since I went onto IPv6. It bears no relation to the one I used to create the monitor. So it isn't driven by the actual address in my case. The BQM on my IPv6 connection has been working perfectly since 16/12/13.
My next step was to run a reverse tracert from tbb to me. That gave an interesting result. It appears to work fine, but the final "host" appears to be an ID for me in the Plusnet IPv6 system. (ipv6testnn.plus.com).
If I use the tool here to see my IP address it returns the associated IPv4 address which I think is static. Also different from my "permanent" but currently unused PN static IPv4 IP address.
Any clues please?
