    Disconnecting in most cases will not change your IP Address, however changing your MAC address will usually cause your ISP to change the IP Address. Some Routers/Firewalls allow you to modify your MAC Address and if attach your modem direct to your PC then there is some software that supposedly can change your MAC Address on your NIC. Affiliate networks and such will not ban you for changing your IP Address unless your intention is to commit some click fraud and you get caught.

    For some cable modems if you change the MAC address on your network card (look it up in device manager or you could use Technitium MAC Address Changer) & reboot the cable modem it will give you a new address. I think some ISPs might be limited to 4 MAC changes within a few hours so be careful or you will get locked out for a bit. Keep a record of your old mac addresses because sometimes you might need to change it back to get online again.. if you can't get back straight away leaving your modem off for 4-5 hours then trying again will usually work.

    well.. as far as ur network is DIALUP one... everytime you disconnect ur cable it will be change ur IP address.

    but to make it sore, i used to use a command prompt and insert command :

    after input it and get the ip, i check my IP on this http://checkmyip.org.

    When I need a new IP I need to open command prompt and
    then do the ol' ipconfig/renew

    Afterwhich open network connections. Right click on my
    'local area connection' and hit properties...

    Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) then hit properties...

    Select 'Use the following address'
    Enter IP Address : 192.168.11.100 hit tab to make
    my default gateway: 255.255.255.0
    Hit 'OK'
    Hit Close

    Which will set my IP at 192.168.11.100

    Then I Do it again except I change my IP automatically....

    Select:
    Obtain an IP Address Automatically..
    Select:
    OK
    Select:
    Close

    Hope that helps....well, actually, I hope I didn't miss
    a step...lol.....damn vodka thursday nights!!

    hm.. I have DSL with 512kb/s here in Germany.

    I have a reconnector, it's a .bat

    Everytime I run it, I see a new IP on www.ip-adress.com
    So what's the different between my and your DSL-Router / ISP

    albaniax: whole germany dsl has a 24 hour disconnect policy. so you receive a new ip per connect and forced every day.
    That's different from country to country

    The question of the TS can easily be answered himself by testing his IP before and after disconnecting his modem, actually that's the only way to go sure;)

    If I disconnect my modem I always get a new IP. Make sure that you're not logged in into stats or something on your affiliate network while you changed IP. But then it should work ...

    Reading this thread makes me feel like I'm back on the helpdesk in 1999...

    God how I hated Bellsouth.
