Why does my IP address keep changing?

 

I work from home and use software the allows me access based on my up address being under an ‘approved list’. But for some Reason turnip address keeps changing so I get chucked out of the work software. 

Any idea why that might happen and how I can stop it?

 

thanks,

@Walshwalshif a fixed IP Address is esential then there are at least two providers that offer that facility.  (1) Plusnet at a setup cost of £5. (2) Zen.  More information can be found by following the link.

Hi Walshwalsh

 

All residential ISP's provide a dynamic IP that will change.  fibre will not change very often, but if you have an adsl service this will change whenever the connection is dropped.

 

TalkTalk business do provide a static IP address so if this is important you may want to enquire about the cost of a business connection.

 

Thanks  

 

Karl.

TT do not offer a fixed IP address on home broadband contracts.

 

It will only change after a disconnection due to a fault, the user turning off or resetting the modem and possibly the router going to sleep due to a period of inactivity.

 

@Walshwalsh 

 

What TT service and router do you have ?
