    I can't take having to wait up to 3 minutes for a simple IP change. I change IP's frequently and need a way to finish the process in 30 SECONDS MAX. I use DSL.

    Is there anyway to speed this up?

    It doesn't matter if it requires a new DSL modem, but I need a way to get it down to 30 seconds max. I am connecting through routed PPP if that helps at all. I'm using a Thompson Speedtouch modem.

    Any tips appreciated.

    There is technically no way to "speed up" the reboot process of your modem. The only possible suggestion I could give you is to use a custom firmware that hast a faster load time then the default one on the router. Good luck though!

    I have been wondering this as well. I think it is also done externally recieving and sending calls to your isp.

    Unplug from wall socket for 30 seconds, plug it back in and you get a new ip everytime.

    Use a power switcher , to switch power on and off to the router , i think it's more faster.

    are you using bridge mode or router mode

    from my experience bridge mode takes only 5 sec to reboot

    I'm using routed ppp. How would I be able to set up a bridged connection? I tried changing my modem settings to bridged but the internet connection dies. I'm using a modem/router combo. Would buying a Linksys router and hacking it with a custom firmware help speed the process up?

    Does the modem brand make any difference in reboot speed? As in, if I get a Linksys modem/router combo with a custom firmware would that make it any faster? Or is the speed determined by my ISP?

    Thanks :)

    That might work but it's difficult finding volume proxies for non-US countries. Also, I'm running through 100-200 IP's a day, with the average proxy costing over two bucks that would cost me 200-400 a day.

    I've been thinking of setting up my own proxy network however it still costs 1.5 to 2 bucks just to create them myself.

    Well you wouldn't need a new proxy everyday, you could use them more often than once... So if you have about 350 proxys (which sounds enough for 100-200 IPs per day, you could use a proxy every 2 days) at 2$/proxy/month this would be about 700$ a month or 25$ a day, not 200$-400$ daily

    My other post was a serious one. Skip the router and hook up directly the the ethernet socket in your wall. Unplug it for ~30 seconds plug it back in and wham you have a new ip.
