DSL/CABLE Static ip vs not static ip?

Discussion in 'Hardware' started by Szeven, Jun 15, 2006.

  1. Ive been losing connection with esignal many times a day recently, and had 1 or 2 instances of quote issues on my trading software, and today esignal diagnosed that my ip address keeps changing because im on cable/dsl dual router.

    Can someone explain if that is possible, and if i just had a dsl/ faster dsl? connection i would not be losing connection to esignal?

    Very frustraing, but i dont really understand and would appreciate if someone could explain this to me.

    It's probably the operating rules used by your cable provider. I'm on cable and I've had the same IP since March. Check with your provider to see what's happening.

    If there is a lot of expansion in your area, that could mean frequent re-numbering as more subscribers come on-line. But that shouldn't happen while you're on-line. My home PC hasn't been turned off since a power failure in April. I do have a UPS on it for insurance though.
