IP Address

Recommended Posts

Any idea why my IP address shows up differently at different times? And not just the last few numbers. I get 3 completely different ip addresses show up on my forum when i check my admin status there. :shocking:

Yes. I only use my home computer. But when, for example I check my admin log at proboards forum, it will show a list of post changes, etc, the user name and the ip. Mine has several different ip addresses. And this has happened at other sites i have visited as well. i dont use a router or proxy or anything-just pay my dsl bill and away i surf.

Your last twenty posts have had four different IP addresses, which indicates that you don't have an always on connection, and you must re-connect to your ISP every so often, which would mean you get a new IP address assigned to you each time you connect, this is known as a dynamic IP address, some ISP's do allow you to have a static IP address which will remain the same all the time, but usually costs more to have.

As Ma TriX 0978 stated this is a good thing really.

Even with cable or DSL, your IP will change from time to time. When I first got the service my IP changed monthly. It hasn't changed for over a year now.
