PlusNet - based in the US. ;)


[link to this post]
 
Have been getting IPs in the 146.200. x.x range lately.

Seems like these are based in the USA which causes problems with some websites. frown

Familiar tale now when phoning PlusNet: "we are aware but can not give a timescale for resolving". frown

Again, as per reporting useage problem, no status email as yet, despite this being a known problem for some while. frown

While it's hardly a perfect solution (seeing as it costs £5), you could always get a static IP from them.

You haven't by any chance got a VPN client installed such as that from www.privateinternataccess.com have you?

It could be worse, it could have been listed as non-routable. With the IPv4 address space drying up I gather that some of the historically "reserved" blocks are being released for ISP use, and that can lead to problems when major routers are still configured to drop packets addressed to them.

There does seem to be an issue with the RIR data - see http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools#ipInformation|type=ipv...

Unfortunately they don't offer a static IP. frown
