      Get IP From sky page?

      Apologies for this as I am not sure where to post this.

      I was just curious to know, when you log into your sky account on the sky website, is there a way to obtain your IP Address from there other than having to log into your router or go to some IP Address checker website?

      I would have thought perhaps sky has the functionality or ability on their customer page to view their broadband details like IP Address and so on?

      Thanks

      Sky do not supply a static IP so the one youhave will change from time to time, usually if the router re-syncs.

      The easiest way to get it is to log into the router, I don't think you can view it from the Sky website.

      Nope the IP isn't shown on the Sky site since it's not something that most customers would need with a basic residential service. I use DynDns to keep track of IP changes on the router but a PC needs to be running at all times to keep it up to date.

      If you log into Sky Email from the Sky Homepage, your IP address is displayed at the bottom of the page. It shows which IP address your email was last accessed from.

      That's because it's based on google apps that use the IP as a security feature. The poster wants a way to remotely check what IP his router is currently getting from Sky servers if I am reading his post correctly.

      The OP doesn't want to go to a website to get the IP address. Think the first question is why do you need to know the IP address from an external source?

      I nearly missed it to begin with. Think the main thing is why is the IP needed as there may be another way of getting it.

      Most routers these days allow you to update dyndns directly. The Sky routers certainly do. In the Advanced page. Once set up with a dyndns url, you can ping the url from anywhere to get the IP address.
      There is no p in Thomson.
