      Arrow Gateway Keeps Changing Also Speed Reduction

      My Gateway keeps changing, before it was:
      Gateway IP Address 89.200.128.30

      now its:
      Gateway IP Address 89.200.128.24

      why does it keep changing?

      also my speed has dropped since i rewired my extension
      at this time the sync is this:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 6298 kbps 861 kbps
      Line Attenuation 44.5db 27.0db
      Noise Margin 7.9db 12.8db

      but in the test socket just before i put it back in the master socket with extensions connected it was this:

      downstream: 6700kbps
      upstream: 861kbps
      Noise Margin DS: 7.0db
      Noise Margin US: 12.9db

      what can i do to get it back to its normal speed using the extension or master socket
      new XTE-2005 faceplates? will they help?

      How many sockets are in use on the line, everything that touches your telephone line when you have ADSL on the line MUST go through a filter. If you have a Sky tv box attached to the line that must be on the filter too and a lot of people mistake the line splitter that the tv installer fits as a filter.

      why does it keep changing?
      Sky use what are known as dynamic IP addresses. Every time you disconnect and reconnect you get allocated a different number. It's more efficient for the ISP as they can reallocate empty slots in their routers immediately instead of having to keep them open just in case the user reconnects (those are static IP addresses).

      Most of the time your IP address won't change, it's only doing that because your line problems are causing disconnections.

      The gateway address is not the IP address as such, it is the 'modem' you are connected to in the exchange. I didn't think these would change too often as I thought the connection would have to be physical swapped, which is obviously not happening. It could be different if it is SVBN. I have never noticed mine changing.
