On ADSL (PPPoA) i'm given a new IP address every time the line resyncs.

how can I know if I am on ADSL? PPPoA ?
I connect via wireless if that matters

ADSL is normal broadband.
VDSL is fibre.
I think all ADSL lines on sky now use PPPoA as opposed to mer.
To double check your connection type, log in to your router here: http://192.168.0.1/
Username = admin, Password = sky.
Click on the maintenance tab & it'll be listed in the broadband port section as 'network type'.
Alternatively, click on 'show statistics' & the type is also shown on the WAN line in the status column.
If it's PPPoA you should be allocated a different IP address after every disconnection / power cycle / reboot etc.

- If you reboot your router too frequently the DLM software will believe that there is a fault on your line and slow your connection down accordingly
- No one needs to get a new IP Address unless thy are doing something wrong. Think about it! Sky has to keep a log of who used which IP Address and when. You can still be identified.
- You will need to switch of the router for an hour to get a new IP Address.
If there is something else going on where someone is hunting for you and giving you grief and you are not doing anything 'naughty' then contact the authorities and they can advise you on what you can do.

ADSL lines require a disconnection of just a few seconds.

Ok, that's changed again. At one point the WAN IP Addresses were very sticky on ADSL. The one hour requirement was something that change with the SR101.

It was the mer factor that made them sticky.
I'm pretty sure that all ADSL lines are PPPoA now.

If you want control of your IP VPN is the only solution.
