Call the internet company and ask them if their ip's are static or dynamic. If the latter then you'll be good to go.

Why don't you keep your AOL but downgrade to dial-up. You'll have no problem obtaining a new IP on each connect.
Then you can go with another broadband provider for your regular Internet access.
AOL dial-up is great for accessing eBay, but you'll be considered an Internet newbie if you still use AOL for day-to-day Internet access.

my IP address is dynamic so does this mean it changes everytime i go onto the internet?

dont really want to use dial up to be honest, I dont mind changing internet providers just as long as it changes

thanks for replys

No, you'll need to reset your modem to change the IP address.

That's one way, if you have a router too you'll need to reset that as well.

You probably don't need 48 hours to do this, what I usually do is unplug for 10 minutes or so, release my ip address.. from command I type in ipconfig /release and plug my modem back in. I go to commnd again and type in ipconfig /renew, it usually grabs a new IP address and I'm ready to go. If you have a router there are more steps then this.

1. Go to myIPaddress.com: What is my IP address? How do I find my IP address? to see if your "public" ip has changed. This is the number that MUST change. Preferrably, have it change each time you log into ebay.

2. Resetting a router is as simple as unplugging it for a minimum of 15-30 seconds. When you plug it back in, it will try to get an ip from your ISP. HOWEVER, your ISP may only give you a new IP address every X number of hours or days. Dynamic IP's from an ISP don't always change each time you connect. Especially if you are using broadband.

3. Another option... Get a cell phone with a EVDO wireless connection and a build in wifi card. Get a program called WMWifirouter and install it on the phone. Use your phone as a broadband modem. You're IP will change each time you connect. The best to options for this is either Sprint or Verizon.

4. Final option... Go to either Sprint or Verizon and buy a USB Cellular Modem. Your IP will change everytime the modem dials a connetion.

PM me if you have more questions. I am a certified A+ computer technician, plus I used to work for an ISP.
