    I asked My isp if they could change my ip adress and they said no. I have a dynamic ip adress. He said there was no physical way. So I said Shure there is I can change service providers.

    It that true they cant change my ip adress.

    If you have an always on like cable, your IP will remain the same as long as you are connected. If you shut your modem down and re-connected you MAY get a different IP addy.

    With dial-up it is random chance each time.

    I suggest you refrain from the behavior that results in you wanting to change your IP address in the first place. :rolleyes:

    Why do you want to change your IP?Do you want to get a fixed IP?If you just want to protect your identity from the prying eyes on the net,you can just use JAP or Anonymiser.And as far as I get from your post above,you ISP offers you a dynamic address which gets automatically changed after you reboot.So,if IP changing is just your concern,it is changed every time you connect to the internet.
