Re: Atlanta getting IP's from LA? 11/15/2012
I've gotten about 8 new IP's the last 24 hours without me doing anything. Speedtest are still good at 6.5 mb

It's not just me. I monitor one of my clients dynamic IP that is also on Mindspring DSL in Atlanta using Direct Update with dyndns.org. On Nov 15 at 3:45 AM he too also went from a 66.32.xxx.xxx IP to 207.176.xxx.xxx IP
I called EarthLink, they have escelated my call to tier 2. I don't care about the IP range, I care about the frequent disconnects.
I did figure out my disconnects. I have a script that runs every hour on my server that pings ns.mindspring.com. If the script fails twice in a row, it does a send keys through the serial port of the Zyxel modem and has it reboot.
Since the the IP range 207.176 can not ping ns.mindspring.com I have been getting those reboots, which gives me a new IP address.
