    Ok quick question. I can change my router's ip address but it looks like my (main) ip address never changes. what will be to visible other people only my router's address? or my main ip address (computer) as well? sorry if my question is confusing but I have a new internet setup and Im still trying to figure out how to change IPs on it so I look like a different user everytime.

    your "main" ip will be visible and it is nothing to do with your router's ip
    what you wrote, it seems to me, you have a static ip, so you can't change it easily or you can't change it at all (you can ask dynamic ip from your provider)
    your static ip is not like dynamic ip, whenever you disconnect/connect your net, you get a new ip, static ip is static :), sometimes it may change, but most of the times it stays the same

    ok now Im confused.

    When I pull up my network connetions and click on my local area connection it shows the router IP.

    when I go to the website whatsmyipaddress it shows my "main" IP not my router IP. wouldnt this site show my router IP if what you said is correct?

    If you have a dynamic ip your ip is leased for a set period. If you use a router then usually your external ip comes from
    the routers mac address. If you connect straight from your network card to your modem then your external
    ip normally comes from your network cards mac address. Routers normally can use your network cards mac address in order to get a ip. If you want to change your ip you will have to use software to cloak your mac address of your network card and change the mac. You can then login to your router and say use your network cards mac. Because it's going to be differet now your ip will change. This is how it works for me, my ip is set by dhcp by my ISP.

    Public IP's normally look like: 72.32.123.21. The numbers are always different, but when you go to the "Whats my IP" website you will see numbers like that. That is the number webmasters track you buy. Don't forget to clear your cookies/cache after changing IPs.

    Anything starting in 192.168 refers to your modem, or router mac address, not IP.
