    Why do you want to ?

    The answer is NO - you can change your isp and then your IP would change, because your isp assigns you your ip

    If you're on dial-up, your ip will be continualy changing, unless you have a static ip, which I think is pretty rare nowadays.

    Anyway YOU cant change your IP, but you can fool a website into thinking you come from a different IP by going through a proxy.

    While I can understand your dilemma, we have the same issues here at this site when we disable a profile. That being said, I'm closing this thread ....
