    In my area they offer a city wide wifi to connect to the internet. I've configured Proxy Firewall 20 different ways trying to get my IP to change but everytime it just reverts back to the same assigned one.

    I think I keep getting the same IP because I'm changing my IP and THEN connecting to their internet(which I think is re-assigning me the same IP regardless of what I'm trying to use). How can I get around this? I tried open proxies, Socks, HTTP, even tried using your-freedom all to no avail. Any ideas other than trying a different ISP?

    I was trying to set up a VPN to see if that helps but hit a technical snafu and got discouraged(more like enraged after the 5 hours I'd been troubleshooting different methods).

    Sounds like you could use some simple private proxies.

    ya you have to connect first. even with a vpn.. I had to connect first then connect to the VPN. Im sure there are plenty that are good but all the ones I tried are blocked. So like Viral said. Private proxies.

    I forgot to mention how the citywide wifi connects. You select it as your wifi network and then whenever you try to go to a website in your browser it redirects you to their log in page for your username/password. After you log in on their webpage your internet works as it would normally.

    If you don't use it at all for a couple of hours you get disconnected and when you try to go to a webpage are redirected to their page again to re-log in.

    Seems whenever I log on that my IP is static and rarely(if ever changes) so I'm assuming that they're assigning it to me when I log on through their page so switching proxies on my end still forces me through their IP assignment but I'm not 100% on if this is what's causing my proxies to not change my IP or not.

    Try changing the MAC address of your NIC (if you're going through a router, 'clone' or 'unclone' the MAC of the local PC) and then connect to the wifi. If that does the trick, there are utils that will let you spoof the MAC so that you could change IPs at will.

    Otherwise, get a reliable private proxy service. I use hidemyip and it makes me scream in rage far less often than anything else I've tried. :D
