Why has my ip address changed

I came to open my router log this morning and found I had a different ip address.  I checked it on whois and it is indeed a Virgin address. Why would it have changed? 

The only thing I can see in the log is a disconnection at 00:16 and several attempts to connect to to my router which succeeded at 0055.  This coincides with a dhcp entry at 0055 in shub3 (in modem mode)  Did Virgin do this, or did the shub3 do it because it had not been rebooted for a while?

IPs change from time to time, Virgin IP addresses are not static but dynamic. IP recycling is nothing new nor something to worry about.

Change of IP can happen if VM setup a new DHCP server or upgrade the network but for the most part your IP does not change that much.
