Force public IP address change

Hi,

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?

Cheers,

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?

Because we use the connection 24/7 and have never experienced this type of activity before. Also nothing has changed in our set up or with any other device in the install location.

Virtually everyone leaves their connection on 24/7. Do the router logs show a DDOS attack?

Nothing needs to have changed for a fault to have developed, they occur at random!

You never answered the question "Are you a BT Business account user"
