Re: [Exede] accessing router through exede modem
said by wm4bama:From a previous post: »Re: [Exede] Exede Static IP
One problem with that suggestion is that WB/Exede does not issue a fixed IP...it's dynamic and may change anytime the modem reboots
May 2012; NRTC News Letter
ViaSat is focusing early Exede sales on the consumer market and does not currently offer static IP with Exede subscriptions. Alana Pilkington, NRTC vice president, Internet Services, said that NRTC has been pushing for ViaSat to include a static IP feature, but in the meantime, there is a potential work-around. What ViaSat is doing today instead of offering static IP addresses is putting a long-term persistent dynamic lease on the modem. The modem would have to be consistently offline for a significant amount of time before it would not get the same IP address back.
