Zen UF2 & Static IP


[link to this post]
 
Another question about upgrading to Zen Unlimited Fibre 2 (from Zen 8000 Active). Will my (single) static IP address assignment change? I'm guessing that it will.

TIA.

I would imagine it wont change. There's no real reason for it to change; your IP address is mapped to a Radius profile, which contains (amongst other things) your PPP login name and password. All you're doing is changing how your internet connection is provided (FTTC rather than ADSL). So you should be fine.

ZeN | 21CN | IPv6 via HE | 60/20Mb FTTC
Previous ISPs: <aaisp.net> | Virgin Media (50Mb/Cable) | Be* Un Limited | ZeN
Is Linux routing your internet connection?
Need to make BIND geo-aware?

Well, that's what I thought, but having placed the order I've received an email confirmation and invoice that amongst other things contains a new Zen username (zen123456@zen format), which implies a new PPP account etc. Shame really, I wasn't too bothered about a change of static IP, but it looks like I'll be losing my zen1234@zen format username (i.e. one of the older accounts) which I rather liked. Not that it makes any real difference I know, but for those that have been with Zen for over ten years, there is a certain something about having one of the shorter Zen account names....shows you've been with Zen a long time!

Give them a call and enquire? They might be able to work some magic on their systems to keep your current account and IP.

I moved from 8000 Active to Fibre about 1.5 years ago myself. I kept both my zen12345@zen username and IP. Maybe your username was too old for them to use for some reason?

when i upgraded, it was completly seamless, no new username / password and no IP change.

Pipex(dial up => adsl) => Nildram => Zen
