Visit the "Control center" (http://www.dslreports.com/schedule/signup/your 6 digit account number
), and click "edit" next to any line monitor. You will then see a STOP MONITOR
button at the bottom.Thanks to PIKE for help with this entry.

Absolutely not. Three tiny ping packets
are sent no more than once every 10 minutes
. This is considerably less than even the background "noise" a typical DSL or cable line has on it.

Monitoring is free for a week after
we get first data from your IP. Dynamic IP setup time, or configuration to become pingable is free as well.
Deduction of Tool Points
happens after the first week of data is received, and weekly thereafter.
Feedback received on this FAQ entry:
- With respect to the "Dynamic IP" setup, it would be helpful if you mentioned when or how you obtain the Dynamic IP. For example, is it automatic whereby you already have, and obtain it without my participation, or is it necessary for me to stop my service and restart it again to reset the address? Very new to IP monitoring service and your capabilities.

The dynamic monitor you setup is allocated a unique number. You can get this unique number from the link Line Monitoring Control Center
.. it is the 6 digit number displayed after the text identifying your line monitor.
This six digit number is your "account" number for this line. You must provide the dynamic DNS client this number, it goes into the Host Name
or DNS Name
