Dynamic IP

I have a dynamic IP but it only seems to rotate 5 same IP addresses, When I was with Telstra the IP's would always change as often as I needed them to.

Re: Dynamic IP

The only guarantee with a dynamic IP address is you are not guaranteed to have a fixed IP address. 

You should not be expecting to get a different IP address at all, just that you might get a different IP.

Re: Dynamic IP

That's a matter of happenstance rather than any particular design. Unless you pay for a static IP you essentially have no control over your IP address (You can't pay for random IP addresses). So your IP could change endlessly or as with many RSPs you could have a 'sticky' IP that only changes every year or so.

If Telstra provide what you need then you should be able to migrate quickly and easily.
