I have broadband with ntl (a UK ISP) and they always offer static ip addresses.
I know what my IP usd to be and it had stayed the same for a long time.
Just lately I'm struggling with download sites that say I'm already downloading from them (when I'm not). On further checking my IP address has changed.
Checking it with various free online IP address checkers I've found most give the "new" address and just one gives the "old" one which I used to have, and want back.
Could some software have hijacked my IP address for others to use?
Am not techie enough to solve this alone.
Any help getting me back to how things were would be very welcome.
PS Regular spyware and virus scans haven't shown up anything lurking.
