Default IP address - safe alternative? public WIFI issues? Public Library? Public IPs ?

so my cable modem doesnt change ip addresses - it has been the same for the past 6 months - cable company says they change when they want to

so i have been traveling to nearby mall to login with no problem

is there any way to purchase software to change ip address (especially to a certain state and so it uses the same ip address)?

also how does ebay distinguish between a user logging in using the same IP at a WIFI non secured IP or a public network of pcs like at a library...if i login and someone using the same IP WIFI or library PC next to me logs into a suspended account - will i get suspended also? how safe are unsecured WIFIs (malls, starbucks) and open PC places (libraries, malls, etc.)?

I recently signed on to AT&T Yahoo DSL service. Based from my observation in the last 2 days, I get a new IP address by turning off the device when I am not using it. I usually check online through whatsmyip.org and it always different by turning it off for about 10 hours. Just my 2 cents.

Exclamation Aol Warning!!!!

I read somewhere that AOL would help in this case somehow, I'm sure they were talking specifically about dialup. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BELIEVE THAT AOL MASKS YOUR IP WITH E-BAY WHILE USING CABLE MODEMS, IF YOU GO TO A IP CHECKING WEBSITE, YOU WILL GET A DIFFERENT IP THAN YOUR REAL IP WHEN USING AOL (duly noted) BUT EBAY SOMEHOW KNOWS YOUR REAL IP. I CANT BELIEVE MY EYES, BUT TRUST ME ON THIS. :(

Isn't AOL using other companies' services to sale internet access? AOL Time Warner Cable? I used to work at Earthlink, and all they do is resale other people's services, using TWC, AT&T, Comcast, etc..

Default Suspension Public Computer

What happens if someone is linked to a suspended account because they both used a public computer?

Has anyone heard of that? For example, I know of a couple of places that have 100+ computers on the network and 20-30 public computers. If I logged in there with a suspended ID, would everyone else who uses those get suspended too?

Might happen but I suppose that it would depend on the specifics. This is one reason that when I do anything at my office I do it through an AOL proxy account

Default Public library's IP causes suspension

hi, i used the public library's ip on a suspended account, and i have no idea how to change the ip except to use a proxy. i know ebay doesnt like proxies, but what if the ip of the proxy is in the same state as my physical address? is that still not ok?

It's best to find a new place to connect to eBay. Most proxies do not work.

So, a public wifi hot spot can only be used until an account is burned? Then, you must find a new location through which to connect? I've been switching locations each time, but had hoped I could stop doing that and could just use the same old Starbucks location.
Thanks for the help!
