changing ip address?
 
Is there a way to change your IP address? I have a cable modem.

Some cable providers randomly give you an IP from a range, so maybe you can reboot your router and see if it changes. But that's my only idea, besides talking to your ISP.

If you need to permanently change your IP address, cable isn't the best. Sometimes you have to leave your modem off for 7 days to get a new one. Most DSL changes everytime you power down the modem. With dial-up you share an IP address with the millions of other customers that use that provider, making you annonymous/unbanable.

If you are concerned about you IP on the web, check out www.proxify.com, it's free, except sometimes during peak hours they will only offer it to paid customers.

Thanks. If I download a program onto my desktop from siteA through proxyfix.com then installed that program, would siteA be able to see what my IP address is when I run it?

It's been 3 days now since you asked. Did you turn off the cable box? Results?

Did you try the proxy? Results?

I know how to change it using dial-up and DSL. Was curious to know how the cable thingie worked.
