Look in your router settings, there should be an option there to have it dynamic, although sometimes, it is set by your ISP.

If not, sometimes you can release and renew your IP and the address will change. Also have you made sure that your TCP/IP settings on your computer are set to dynamic IP? If they are set with a specified IP address, that would very well be it. But usually your Internet IP is a static IP assigned by your ISP. Check with them, maybe they can give you a new IP address.

As I said in your last thread, kind of takes the piss, you ask for this help, people reply, with their time, working things out, and you go off and change your mind. Sorry if people dont agree, but that's how I feel.
