    If your provider only assigns a static address, you could try to change it to another address on the same subnet as your current one. Might not work if they do MAC based vlan..

    Just a few tips:

    Buy an air card or a VPN connection and you will have a new IP.
    Also, dial-up connections do change the IP at each new login.
    Go find some unprotected wireless connection in the neighborhood with your laptop, or visit some wireless hot-spot available in your town.

    it is very easy to change your ip address.
    you could use thor with firefox
    but
    most websites know a proxy sever when they see one
    so that's not a real good option
    the best why
    log into your router
    "clone your mac address"

    plug out your router and cable modem
    wait
    30 seconds
    plug it back in
    and you have a new ip address..

    A wireless air card
    or
    a VPN connection still can be a solution.

    Using proxies may also help to some degree, depending on your purpose.

    Question is, how many times do you need to change your IP and how often?

    There really isn't "static" IP's for home Internet users from their providers. They are all dynamic, however they usually have a semi-long 'lease' time with the DHCP server your ISP runs.

    What has to happen is this, you have to "release" your IP address from your ISP for a long enough time someone else picks it up or it's sent back to the pool.

    So, what you can try as your best bet is, before you go to bed unplug your router power.

    In the morning plug it back in and you might have a new IP. They used to have shorter release times on cable modem but it seems they have it set very long now.

    Man Simple solution Search a software SMAC 2.0 and change the MAC adress of your NIC
    and your IP will be changed and to get the Old IP back just remove the Spoffed MAC address and u will get your Old IP back.

    Doing this is Illegal i think in US and UK ISP.
    DO this only for some time not a long time.

    Then either contact your Internet Service Provider to ask for a new IP address, or buy a VPN service (available from $6-$12 per month) and use that. Take care to fly under radar next time. Use, don't abuse.

    Changing your MAC address may disrupt your Internet service as well. Take care with such methods, as may work or may not work depending on the technology used by your ISP.

    Some ISPs provide fixed IP. If it is difficult to change the IP with the ISP, then still you have a chance to get another IP via several methods. One of these is to purchase a VPN service. You may pay each month a couple of $ for a VPN service, thus you have to decide if it's worth of it.


    Check on Google for the keywords IP+VPN to get some providers.

    the big question...what do you have now? Cable internet? if so, then it's very difficult to change your IP on the fly. DSL? go to you*tube and you'll find tons of tutorials on how to change your IP address.

    Check out youtube and try one of the method of re-leasing your ip address. This is if you have cable internet.

    If you have had your connection for a relatively short period of time, you can complain to your isp that they gave you an IP address that was blacklisted on several websites and most of the mail you send gets sent to junk folders and you don't know why.

    They should have not queries if your bandwidth usage has been low.
