Re: [PLUG] verizon dsl static external address

you are right
i started checking every day, and it appears to be stable

of course my block in springfield, seems to get power knocked out by storms several times a day.

As other folks have said, I'm surprised it changes often as well.
Neither my FiOS nor my Comcast residential DHCP changes more often than
once every couple of years unless the bridge has a 10+ minute power outage.

1) Is your bridge (cable "modem" or whatever) stable?
2) Are the MAC address of the device behind the bridge and the device
itself stable?

If they aren't, if you can make them stable that might fix the problem.
If not, the other suggestions about running a script or ddclient are
your best bet.

There is some bash code to get started with in the cookbook:
