Default Using separate Windows accounts, do you still need to change your IP?

When using separate Windows accounts, do you still need to change your IP address every time you log in to a different account? For example, if I log into account 1, do I need to change my IP to log into account 2 and then again to log back into account 1?

Every time I do that, I get "You are using an unrecognized computer." Then I have to talk to live help to confirm my identity. I am not clearing my cookies or anything, since it's on a different Windows account. The only thing changing is the IP address.

That's hard to believe. I have never had a problem before. There is no way that is possible due to the fact of quite a few people using Dial-up which you get a new ip everytime. And that means there would have be A TON of ebay employees constantly doing the same thing with every user that has dial-up. It has something to do with cookies I would say.

It is possible you need flash loaded on your user accounts.

Read somewhere of someone else having the same problem without flash.

What do you mean flash loaded? I think it should be installed and you dont have do that on separate accounts.

I upgraded to Firefox 3.5.3, and as soon as it opened, it say I needed to update Flash. Once I did that, I never got the error again.

I lived in a complex witih about 4 people who sold on ebay. The complex 'let out' internet to the tenants so most of the time we were sharing IPs.

When my account went down so did another persons (we were the only real heavy users of ebay) but I later realised that this was more likely because we had logged in to our ebay/paypals on each other's computers occasionally and even shared a paypal once due to a limitation on one.

What I realised a year later was that the other people who never used the same pcs (cookies etc), their accounts are still working.

I know IP could be used to confirm linking, but I think it's less likely to be the linking factor as everyone knows you could get unlucky and end up with a banned IP just from your ISP.

I remember when I first signed up on aspkin there was talk of people doing experiments to find out once and for all if IP linking could be a reason to get accounts linked but I never heard the outcome.

Opinions?

Philly387 is correct! If you are going from one User Account to another User Account, assuming you are logging into each Stealth Ebay/Paypal account within the User Account, then YES you will have to change your IP each time.

Aspkin had PM'd the following to me. It may help you or someone else who reads this thread.... "If you have a router, change the mac address on your router, reset your broadband modem and you should have a new IP. Or just get dialup."


Now, if you have a seperate User Account, for Stealth only, with only 1 Ebay and 1 Paypal, you can go into any other User Accounts for whatever reason, BUT if you decide that you need to log into that specific Ebay/Paypal account, change the IP!

Good Luck!

Just make me it all depends on ISP where are different policies and for example in Lithuania where is no chance you will get new IP just changing mac. IT ALL DEPENDS ON ISP AND THEYR POLICIES.

Right it depends on your ISP.. most members in the US have dynamic IP address in which this will work. If your IP is static.. you're screwed.

Dialup for you.
