IM just curious to see what virgin media lease time is for an assigned public ip address, Im aware the lease will expire after so long but if that device is still connected it would normally get the same mac address
What i notice is if i change my 3rd party mac address via my wifi router i can get a new IP address assigned from VM - My question is how long will it be before my old ip address i used to have will be put back in the pool for someone else to use?
My IP address changed a few weeks ago, due to reconfiguration, and the old address went straight back into the pool. My monitoring script noticed it and when it went to change my Thinkbroadband display I could see the old one was still active. I think it depends on how many free address there are at the local ‘headend’.
