    Hello,

    I have some questions.

    I currently have normal adsl internet connection with dynamic ip, so when I reset my router, it resets the ip.Anyone know how many ips maximum can I get from 1 line ? I know ISP have millions of ips, but from 1 line, what's the maximum I can get, and do I often get same ip or I will get new ip everytime.

    And if I get 4 lines/4 numbers, do I get ips from the same pool or different pool.

    Thanks

    Depends on the ISP. You could be in a pool of of up to probably 2 million IPs or as little as 2. No one will be able to give you an answer except your ISP and they won't tell you.

    For comparison: I have an ISP that is very local (only 3 towns in this state) and I'm in a pool of ~1200 IPs. I get the same IP maybe once a month and I disconnect every 3-4 hours and get a new one.
