How to change external IP?


[link to this post]
 
Hi

How can I get the Superhub 2 to change IP address?

If I put router into Modem Mode for a week or 2 will it change?

Any help would be appreciated?

I had mine in MM for 4 months and when I went back I had the same IP address. The only time it changed was when I spoke to Billing and it changed then. Apparently every time they go into the account a hit gets sent.

Other option is to get a cheap or free VPN and run that.

Na ur wrong there mate billing nor tech support will change ur IP Address.

When i spoke to billing and retensions to upgrade me from 120mb to 152mb when it was done i still had the same IP address i've had for months.

The last time my IP address changed was when i put SH2 into modem mode and added my own router which obviously added its own MAC which was different from SH2 causing an IP change and that was about 3 months ago.

Well I've woke up today and i've gone from a resi to a business static IP address and I don't know why. When I go to the "more info about you" bit of whatsmyip I get told I am on a "static.virginmediabusiness.co.uk" address.

I have residential 50mbps.

So work that one out!!

SO when you go to http://www.whatsmyip.org/more-info-about-you/ it gives you no hostname? if so how are you connected?

Mine simply says some digits and then static.virginmediabusiness.co.uk it has some more digits and says on the end "in-addr.arpa"

I can put up a screenshot if you still need further proof. After all not all everyone says is a lie you know.

Edit:: If A mod or Andrew you would like back me up on the hostname of my IP address feel free.

it does give a host name but it doesn't state whether or not its residential or business.

Well if it does not say virginmediabusiness.co.uk then it's residential. I can't remember mine but it was something like cmts22.new25-virginmedia.net or something.

Well I switched into modem mode yesterday and going to stop there for a while now and see if i can get it to unstick..

If not then looks like I'm no longer using the superhub 2 anymore.

I've had my IP change when I have used modem mode - but this is different. It's specifically showing it as a static VM address and I have rebooted several times.

Not a problem as I am looking into business anyway but as far as I know I am not on it yet
