I know one large probably that i had was when i first moved into my current house, is that i was using the wireless router my isp made me lease from them. I worked alright but it would change sessions very often and interrupt anything ongoing like a download or online gaming session.
Took a while to figure it out but after a while, we determined that it was in fact the default setting in the router, which we couldnt change So what we ended up just using disabling that router and only using it to convert from one cable to a another then using another wireless router that actually holds a signal.
Another thing i noticed is that when im using Google Chrome it will log me out
but when im using Firefox I only get logged out when my internet gets disconnected or i turn my computer off
but most of the time it wont log me out, which i find handy
but yes if you are using Google Chrome try another Browser
if its on your phone then its what people have mentioned already
Feel Like Dancin @50 posts[check box]Use Static IPv4 Address
PPP Static IPv4 Address:
Obtain Automatically or Set DNS Manually (I need to choose)
Secondary DNS: (optional)
DO you guys think this is what is causing my ip change ?
If yess plz like give me and example of how to fill it or something and thanks
Sorry but i have no idea about those stuff
Adios. @1,380 postsmy DNS is set to be obtained automatically so thats not the reason of your problem.
What type of internet connection are you using?
or the DSL?
Feel Like Dancin @50 postsDSL
Adios. @1,380 postsnow go to your routers page and tell me what is the type of your connection.
Dynamic IP Address
Static IP Address
these options can be seen while setting up your routers configurations.
The tab might be labeled as "Quick Start".
Adios. @1,380 postsand tell me if DHCP server is enabled or not?
If yes then check what is its lease time?
IF the lease time is too low then thats the reason your ip is changing too frequently.
Adios. @1,380 postsand to increase the lease time you can only do so by telling your isp to increase it for you.
Feel Like Dancin @50 postsHmm im gonna contact my internet provider to see what can i do
Why would you want a static ip? It sucks. Usually you have to pay more for a dynamic
Adios. @1,380 postswho said he is going for the static ip?
He just need to get his lease time a bit high.
and btw i have a dynamic ip and if i want to have a static ip i need to pay more.
Frankie. @414 postsOur office uses Static... I don't see anything wrong with it. It does the trick and is pretty fast too
Adios. @1,380 postsstatic is bad when you use sites like rapidshare for downloading. They put you on wait for 30+ mins to get another download.
But if u have a dynamic ip just restart the router and start downloading without waiting
Feel Like Dancin @50 postswhy cant you use a proxy to do that ?
Adios. @1,380 postswe can use proxy/vpn for that but speed decreases most of the time because of far away servers.
