Default always having to change MAC address - what am I doing wrong?

Hi everyone,

Quick question - when I log on to my stealth account I've been changing my IP address (so I'm not linked to my REAL, ACTIVE paypal account). However, every time I go to change the IP (disconnecting modem and router for 2+ minutes), it doesn't change. Thus, I have to follow the typical instructions of logging into my modem, changing the mac address, unplugging the modem, then checking IP chicken - and THIS always works.

Here's the problem - this is becoming a HUGE pain in the butt. This process takes me 5+ minutes each time and I usually log in and out 20-30 times per day. And if I'm going to have multiple stealths, this is REALLY going to get annoying.

Any help is much appreciated.

I'm about to buy a USB internet stick/dongle. I believe all you do is just plug it in & out and you get a new IP address.

Yes most usb modems aka dongles change ip's everytime you connect and disconnect. Most are on prepaid or postpaid just do a google search.

Dongles, mifi and tether does repeat Ip's though...

I use all 3 and all of them have repeated IP's numerous times...

I get most variations of IP from dedicated broadband... I too got a bit lazy with turning on and and off router so I attached a power strip with extension cord near my PC so that I could just hit the power switch on power strip instead instead of router...lol
