Within the past week, I noticed I couldn't access some of the sites I usually visit. I eventually found out this was because I had an IP address in a much different location than where I am currently located (at least 1000 miles away...). Consequently, I tried to figure out what the problem is. I'd connect the computer to the modem, restart it, then it'd give me an IP address near my current location. The moment I go back to wireless on my router, however, my IP address changes drastically. I've tried to manually insert the IP address into my router, but since I have a dynamic IP, this only solves the problem for less than a day. A few things:
- I don't think this is a computer issue. I've tried this with other computers, same result.
- I don't think this is a router issue. I've tested other routers, same result.
This leads me to believe it's an ISP problem (which they can't figure out) or a bad modem. Can anyone help?
