This is really odd.

I have on my dial up accound becuase broadband is down the same IP evry time I connect, after seeing the new sheilds up site.

Very odd and I have never seen this before it ussually always changes.

Yes, when I reconnect!!!

  Gaz 25 17:08 03 Aug 2003

I have reconnected 5 times and the system has held the same IP.

Very odd.

Nice new one now, after deleting Cookies and Temp Internet files.

Makes you wonder.

I will leave this thread open.

So what is that saying, my ISP is trying to make me keep that IP.

I have a nice new one now, but again it sticks and hold on to it.

Its nice to have a new IP. It stops the chances of you being tracked.

Very odd.

Anyway, oddly IP config shows my CURRENT IP as the DEFAULT GATEWAY, is this normal.

I would have thought the default gateway would be my ISPs servers?

Looks like I am so over reactive no one wants to reply, but anyway.

I will wait.
