TalkTalk IP blocks


[link to this post]
 
I'm with AOL which has been using the TalkTalk network since 2008. My IP address always used to start with 92.xxx (specifically 92.15.xxx since my exchange was LLU'ed).

I've had a few powercuts recently and therefore got new IPs - they've begun 78.145.xxx, 88.xxx and 2.96.xxx. I've never been on these IP ranges before, to my knowledge.

Have they stopped using the 92.xxx blocks? Will being on a new(?) range of IPs have any effect on my internet or am I still being connected to the same equipment?

TalkTalk own Tiscali so perfectly valid, and the looks from ping tests etc depend on third parties keeping up to date with all the blocks moving around too.

Change of IP address should have no real effect, this happens when you use a dynamic IP address service.

Some providers use different blocks for different gateways onto their network but they should be all the same in terms of Internet access unless there is a fault somewhere of course.

You've just been moved from a block of AOL IPs to other TT/Opal IPs. There's no reason for you not to go back to the 92.15. in the future as they still belong to CPW/TT. But it doesn't really matter as with a dynamic IP you can be allocated any IP from CPW/TT at each resync.
