      IP Changing?

      I'm looking to change my IP.

      I've rebooted the router, but when I reconnect only the last block of digits has changed.

      Is there any way of getting a completely new IP?

      Many thanks

      If the last block of digits has changed then it is a new ip........ if your ip range is blocked from a site it's probably best to politely ask them to remove it..
