If you're on dial-up, disconnect and reconnect.

If you're on broadband, disconnect for a few hours/days (ISP pending) and reconnect.

Your real IP address can be found by going to:
http://www.ipchicken.com/ or http://www.whatismyip.com/
That is your WAN IP Address (Wide Area Network)

All the IP address will do is trace you back to a certain country and sometimes which part of that country (such as which US State for example) but it will never trace you down to a certain street.

It will find your real IP address - the same one that the router is using to give your computer(s) internet access.
