      Static IP Address

      I am having an issue, my IP keeps on changing and it is quite annoying. To cut a long story short I have access to a test site which is authenticated through whitelisting my IP, I am having to ask on a daily basis to add my IP to the whitelist. I was wondering if Sky offer static IPs, I remember on TalkTalk I had one, on Sky however I do not. Can I get one?

      Thanks for all future replies

      Re: Static IP Address

      Do you switch your router on and off or reboot it a lot? It is unusual for the IP address to change a lot if you don't.
