    If I have a DSL connection, do I need to worry about proxies?

    I heard I can reset my IP with DSL, but how is this done? Do I have to literally go to the DSL modem everytime and hit reset, or is there a program or feature on Windows that I can do this straight from my laptop?

    what I do is just unplug my connection and plug it back in, when it reconnects I have a new ip

    Yeah, make sure that you wait at least 30 seconds before you turn it back on. I love the cable speed but will not give up my DSL just for this reason. It is much cheaper than getting an aircard or private proxies.

    well my house uses a router, so how exactly would i do this? I run on wireless, does my IP still change everytime I disconnect if I am using wireless?

    DSL has a few advantages and disadvantages.
    Reconnecting sucks for many people as it causes a network disruption, logout everywhere and it costs some time.
    DSL of course is no anonymous method to be online, for much stuff that's not important anyway but keep in mind that your DSL IP is just like your phone number or street address.
    And one more disadvantage is that all your IPs come from the same provider and the same subnet ranges.

    @ alpha: you can test if your ip changes here: http://proxy-check.squabbel.com
    It will not change when you reconnect your wlan, you'll have to reset or reconnect your router (through the webinterface as example)

    yeah but think about it though, the kids that uses proxies are retarted if they think they are hidden

    i'm cisco certified, theres always a ip log, regardless

    also who the hell is going to spam something that isn't going to make them money? spammers spam shit that makes them money, what they spam traces back to them, affiliate networks, hosting, domains, paypal, checks, ssn, also if they ever get caught up they aren't going to do it quick they will wait til they have enough on you then bang ur fucked, thats how it goes. thats life.

    only way to not get caught up is to do ID theft, thats it, only way.

    You are actually wrong on that, there are multiple ways to gain anonymity of various quality levels without any illegal involvement.
    As ccna (p?) certified you probably know that routers usually do not log IPs, due to lack of IO performance and storage capacity.

    Even (in a world of tomorrow) if all routers could log your IP and store it, as soon as you use a proxy things would get a lot more complicated up to impossible to keep an automated track.

    justone is correct...

    I am a CCNA, and know for a fact that logging is not done on EVERY connection.

    But surely you can do it for specific situations.

    Just try logging TCP and UDP (ad other protocols) connection on your own computer and suurf the web and chat like you would normally do. Things will get very complicated really quick.

    Hey, Cisco routers even have trouble just routing traffic. I can't even imagine what implications logging each connection could do.
