    Why would my ip change?

    It seems weird, while surfing the web my ip changed. I know this because one of my sites is down for maintenance and allowing only my ip.

    It got me curious, what's the reasoning for the change?

    (I don't have dial up btw.)

    Probably just normal load balancing. Are they both in the same range? eg.
    123.45.67.89 and 123.45.67.94

    Ah, ok.

    The first two numbers 123.45 are the same.

    Unless you paid you ISP for a static public IP, at anytime your IP will change. Also you should be aware that your ISP is probably using NAT. Which means there could be a lot of users with that same IP running around.
    Logic without the fatal effects.

    Bunch of copycats running around with my ip. I wonder if I can check who they are with my isp.

    Btw, is your definition of a lot over or under 1 out of every 1000?

    Perhaps I'll password protect the directory as well.

    That's weird. I didn't know that was possible.

    I am on dial-up. My IP is different each time I log on, but as far as I know it's never changed in the middle of an online session.

    I think it's odd too.

    I am on dial-up.
    Lol.
