VM Business Static IP


[link to this post]
 
Does anyone know whether there is still problems with the VM Business broadband when Static IPs are configured ?
I know there were issues a couple of years ago, haven't kept up to date on this.

Check very carefully if you are really getting a Static IP address, rather than one which has a somewhat lesser chance of changing than has an ordinary retail-customer IP address.

They used to have weasel wording which needed to be read very closely indeed....

Thanks John_Gray, I will do that.
Unfortuneately the whole service has fallen down right now. I'm not able to get internet through to a computer, although can ping fine from the router, and the computer gets a DHCP address.
Now waiting for VM to come back and fix.
Cheers.

That changed a while ago and with it introduced the performance problems with statics.
