Why does the lease time on the Telus Fiber connections have to be so low ? My ip address keeps changing every few days. I work from home and have multiple vpn connections for work & the phone system for work. Ipsec tunnels have to have the IP manually entered in and its VERY frustrating that the ip keeps changing so often.

Are you using the Telus provided router or your own?

My own router, I run a Untangle Firewall because i have Multiple Ipsec Tunnels for work. Weird, my ip just changed AGAIN !!  in 2 days it's changed 4 times.

Check your router. It sounds like it may not be properly renewing the DHCP leases in time. Normally an IP change is rather infrequent, at least using the Telus gateway.
