[Cable] IP forceable changed?

Hello, I have cable in Ottawa FYI.

Anyway, last weekend I changed my routers MAC address to pull a new IP (like I do every once in a while), and I got a 198.xx one which I had never gotten before. Anyway, after doing research, it is a TSI range and I specifically liked it because it has no geolocation information associated with it.

Yesterday, I come home and my IP has been forceable changed, as I didn't touch anything....Below are my modem logs. Ottawa did experiences DHCP issues recently (but those didn't affect me) and we were bumped up to 4 channel upstream bonding (did affect me) so maybe those were related? If I wanted one of those 198.xx IPs again specifically, could I do so myself or call up TSI and ask?

No static IP's on Cable. You get what you get.

No, there is nothing that can be done.

TSI gives IP blocks to Rogers on a per-POI basis and Rogers allocates IPs whichever way they want across the POI. TSI has absolutely no control over who gets IPs from what IP pool beyond that and whenever Rogers shuffles equipment around, IP pools get booted around which is why you often hear about DHCP leases dropping to 1h instead of 3-7 days while Rogers is working on a POI.

Hi,

Unfortunately even if we requested to release the ip theres no guarantee you will get an ip assigned on that subnet when you reconnect.

Wrong. I had the same IP with Rogers for 2+ years. Yes it's officially not static, but as long as your router has the same MAC address and it doesn't reset (including your modem), you will keep it unless something happens.

This is the first case since I've manually been rotating my IPs that my MAC hasn't changed, but when it rebooted (I'm guessing because of the 4 upstream bonding), it did not pull the same IP. It must have been taken or something....Anyway, this is no longer an issue because I managed to get a 198.xx IP again

No, he's entirely right. While Cable IPs can remain the same for quite a long time, that is absolutely not the same as "static". It can change any time equipment at either end is reset, or simply when the DHCP lease is up.

This was something that was fought for in front of the CRTC quite extensively, and the CRTC ordered the cable companies to provide a solution (to provide static IPs to wholesale cable customers). Unfortunately, there aren't any good technological solutions, so all the solutions that remained after this process were things like VPNs and tunnels.

Some of them can theoretically be done without any extra equipment (such as using a router that also supports the tunnel/vpn used), but all of them have a bunch of overhead.

Just try changing the MAC on the router a few times and see what you come up with. Nothing lost except a few minutes.
