Howdy:

If you are on a dial-up connection, your IP Address changes everytime you log on to the internet!!

Generally disconnecting and reconnecting from your ISP should give you a new IP - most ISPs use technology called DHCP, if I recall correctly, to automatically assign you an IP when you log in.

So if you log in really fast, you might get the same IP again. Having said that, with dialup it shouldn't happen often.
