Can i get a Static IP address?

My IT dept at work are able to allow me access to the work network but i require a static IP address to allow this.

 

Is there a way i can change it from the natural set up?

No, VirginMedia will not allocate static WAN IP addresses but they are incredibly sticky.  I'm still on the same one after 2 years and numerous reboots of the hub.

If you are working at home you really need a business line, maybe your company will pay for this. A long time ago the company I then worked for paid for an ISDN line to my home for working at home and out of hours support.

your standard package external IP address is static in all but name. it will never change unless you replace the hub or leave everything powered off for a week

 use whats My IP to see what it is now, & recheck daily until you believe us.

Your External IP address can change if VM do a reconfiguration of the CMTSs at their premises. This has happened to me twice.
