Unfortunately Virgin media only use static ip’s based on the MAC address on their super hubs however having the equipment in router mode and/or modem mode Will give you two different ip’s but restarting the equipment won’t assign you a new ip so there for having the hub in modem mode then a 3rd party router will give you a new different ip based on the MAC address of that router or ask vm for a new hub to get that new ip
Iv never heard of betting sites banning VPN’s but a quick google search from my understanding now its only illegal if the country your in makes betting illegal so by being uk based and using a uk vpn you should be ok. Expressvpn are very good at unlocking websites and streaming services. (Hello Netflix)
I use Expressvpn all the time on everything phones pc’s nas drives & Xbox one never had a problem. A quick test found that using a uk server on bet365 will work but a non-uk server say Germany won’t work as it’s all down to location. At the end of the day VPN’s are made to encrypt your internet connection to help with privacy and stop attacks, I’m using a vpn right now virgin are not going to stop or ban me! lol it all depends how the vpn is used.
1: I recommend using ASUS routers in which the wan ip’s can be changed using MAC ADDRESS CLONING I do this every so often with my 68u as this is handy to stop ddos Attacks.
3: it’s easy to setup any new router just by following the on screen propt but remember to change the default passwords both log-in and WiFi
4: It Highly recommended that you use a good paid vpn NOT the FREE one’s.
5: Why should isp’s give their customers a VPN free when it’s not for everyone after all the way things are going now with internet privacy there the ones watching what you do online, they can see that you go on Z website and service and download torrents.
