I have a few questions relating to Plusnet & BT IP Profiles.
I have noticed today a discussion about slow 'gateways' - I'm currently on ptn-ag02. My ping seemed quite high compared to normal so I used the disconnect on the router page of the 582n, which I read should not affect the BT IP profile. However it has, it dropped from 66.21 to 59.41! I switched off both the modem and router and after a minute switched the modem back on. It connected fine & I switched on the router.
1) Firstly when I tried to reconnect to Plusnet via the router page the network would not take my username & password. I left it an hour and then when I rebooted the PC it was connected again. Why is this so? (Is it due to having a dynamic IP?)
2) Does disconnecting the router from the router page affect DLM? (I did disconnect twice within a few minutes)?
3) Once reconnected, my BT IP Profile has gone up to 59.89. Someone on the PN forum said it can take 4 days to get back to the 66 I was on. Is this correct?
4) How do you change the gateways you are connected to or is this done as the dynamic IP is reset?
I think this is the last time I'll play about!!
Many thanks for any replies
