Virgin


[link to this post]
 
Hi I wonder if anybody can help, basically I'm with virgin and had a broadband quality monitor running for 5 years and my ip never changed, but last night my ip changed and so i set up a new monitor, but when I look at my old ip monitor its still runnung and showing information?

I thought that the old ip address monitor would show a sea of red? How can the old monitor be working when it's not my ip anymore?

If the IP has been assigned to someone else who has a router that will respond to pings then it will keep going. IPs are reused and therefore this isn't that much of a surprise. No real security issue but I believe you can just turn the old monitor off which will stop it.

I would use DDNS instead of the IP, as most ISPs (including Virgin) can change the IP you are assigned at any time. I'm not sure what the various versions of SuperHub and Hub 3 and Hub 4 support, as I use mine in modem mode, and my separate router updates the DDNS.
