Dynamic vs static IP

I noticed CityWest says cable internet has dynamic internet addresses.  How often does the address change?  Mine has been the same for quite a while.

I believe it won’t change unless you unplug/reset the modem.

Change your MAC address then you might get a new IP address

That’s what Telus 310-TECH has told a few people. Take your computer to a technician and have him change the MAC address…
you’d probably have to power off your modem for over a week to get a different IP. Unless they set a shorter lease time.

You may also have to delete any dhcp caches that may exist

The office where i work has a dynamic IP, we have had the same IP for months
it only changes if our router gets unpluged or rebooted

I moved across town and my IP didn’t change :wink:
