    This maybe the wrong section but, I want to call my ISP ( TWC ) and ask them to give me a dynamic IP and not a static which I currently have.

    Any good excuses, or is it just I am paying you stfu lol.

    Also will they charge me more ??

    What are you using? Cable/dsl? I don't know anything about TWC but from my own experience, DSL typically is dynamic and cable more often than not is static. You can change your static IP on cable but it isn't as easy as redialing on DSL. It will depend on what type of connection you have and the policy off your ISP though.

    Bullshit your way say something like your a web designer who needs a dynamic ip because you feel safer not having a static ip address because you work for government and banking websites, and you work freelance therefor you mostly work at home.
    Having a static ip would be a security risk. See what they can give you.
    Say you never trust antivirus or routers because they can always be exploited with 0day exploits :D

    do you need a reason? You pay the bill, they should do it with no questions.

    tell them you are the customer and you are always right ;)
    try changing the mac address on your router if you have one, that makes your isp give you a new ip, i do it all the time. its not a great method tho because it sometimes takes 5-10 mins to get a new ip. have you thought about using dial up for your second ip?

    Ok I just called Net zero and they told me my IP doesnt change every time I reconnect.
    I have been told some dsl providers will give me a new Ip address but I thought dial up was good for generating new ips ?

    Cable companies will not give you a new IP, Period! They'll tell you some bs that they don't have control over IPs and that it usually changes by itself every 3 months or so.

    I used something similar.

    I told them that a friend worked in security recommended it against hacking / identity theft.

    Some places you can just ask and not give a reason, or just say you heard its better.

    You could ask for extra IP's.. Some isp's provide upto 8 ip's per account...

    hardkoramerikan: No difference, except one is there for life (static) the other will change everytime you reconnect (dynamic)

    Unless you are paying for a static, you probably have a "sticky" which will change every few months ...

    or when you unplug your router during high-traffic times like 3pm - 9pm on a Friday night as their router serves the availables to the demand.

    Try it.
