I would like to know how I can either mask or change my IP address. I am a proffesional gambler and when I make a bet the betting company can see my IP address. When I place a bet from the same IP address they restrict the size that I can bet. I want to know if there is an easy way to stop my IP address being shown, or a way to change my IP address when I login. Is there any software or downloads one can recommend? Would this in anyway slow down my browsing speed or is this a tedious time consuming job? All advice greatly appreciated.

While technically possible, in practice it's nearly impossible to spoof (or forge) your own IP address. However, you can connect to an intermediate computer, so it appears the traffic is originating from it's IP, masking your own. This is known as a proxy. There are many proxy servers available. TOR Project is a free proxy service and open network.

Using a proxy will slow your internet connection as the additional routing introduces latency, and the proxy connection may not have as much bandwidth as your own connection.

Would a professional gambling company allow bets via proxy? I doubt it.

Thank you Admin. Why would the betting company not accept bets from a proxy server? Is this because they need to know where the bet is coming from?

Some people have advised me to just turn my router of an on again and it will generate a new IP address?

It depends on your ISP whether unplugging your router will work. Some will lease a new IP address, others won't. You can save a few steps by typing ipconfig /release and then ipconfig /renew from a command line (elevated if Vista/7/8). Or you could get AOL dial-up, it uses a new IP address every session. Sometimes during the same session.

For me using the Command ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew works. Also when I unplug my router,my ip will change.I check my ip address using the site IP-Details.com to check whether my IP addresss is changed or not. I checked these methods in Windows XP and 7 and it works well .I hope it will work on Windows 8 also. I heard it will work only if you have Dynamic IP address.
