Right now I have a Dynamic IP Address,but what's the diffrence with static and dynamic?
Static = You allways have the same IP
Dynamic = You are given a random IP everytime you connect to the internet.
Note though, most ISP's just give you the same IP even with Dynamic. In theory, it changes, but most of the time it doesn't.
Do you ever turn off your modem?
Modem? Who has a modem nowadays
Anyone with decent cable internet. >_>
Yeah, most people do. Unfortunately, they all suck.
I've had cable for ages without a modem.
Um, are you sure you're thinking about a modem and not a router? AFAIK, a modem is necessary for cable internet.
I'm hoping that most providers have moved on to providing routers instead of modems. I know Comcast has.
My Home network: Cable that comes into house > Router > Switch > Computers & WAP. I don'y have a ADSL modem as such.
No, Bell Sympatico took our old DSL router and switched it for a modem, cuz my dad is a moron who gives into this kind of shit. If you have dynamic ip, it changes very, very often. the one that starts with 198 is NOT your ip address for the internet service. That's your modem and/or router's ip adress.
Eh, apparently I'm wrong about the modem thing. I do still have a modem though.
I reset my adsl router/modem quite frequently. You telling me that everytime you turn off your modem, you're assigned a different IP? Try it and get back to me.
