We are having some issues with reoccurring dropouts and we suspect an attempted denial-of-service (DDoS) attack. Our set up is Dreytek Vigor 130 and Ubiquity EdgeRouter x. The connection is dropping out every 20mins for a short period and has started at the same time the last couple of days. We are monitoring the connection to see if it's a true DDoS attack but would like to force a public IP address change.
The question is – How do we force a public IP change?
IDWBP (I don't want to be pinged)
Turn off the router for a bit (like 30mins or above), even though the assigning of the IP address is dynamic it needs to be released
Are you a BT Business account user?
Why do you suspect a DDoS attack rather than a possible electrical interference or other problem?
Virtually everyone leaves their connection on 24/7. Do the router logs show a DDOS attack?
Also nothing has changed in our set up or with any other device in the install location.
Nothing needs to have changed for a fault to have developed, they occur at random!
