Too many IP addresses won't limit your account UNLESS you log-in from a ton of different IP addresses - that's the point.

No that's the right away to do it - diff ip per account. You will not have used too many AND you will avoid linking. Nothing to be confused about just don't do accidental log-ins.

Ah well you should keep same IP for each account individually. If your pc gives you random ips - you need to log them and wait for right one to appear FOR THAT ACCOUNT - or so I have understood things.

You cycle through your IPs provided until the right one pops to use for your account. You can check you IP with IP burger - search the forusm.

I cycle my IPs all the time and never wait for a same IP to come around, that would take forever if not longer. Cycling IPs in my view is fine, it's like accessing your account from a different computer, or simply accessing your account from a dynamic IP (which you are) - I've never had a problem. Paypal can't limit you simply due to differing IPs. Sure if you access an account for a extended period of time using one IP then suddenly changing IP may raise a flag, but if your account is always accessed form a different IP then they must assume dynamic. Someone else wish to add something?

As said above I think the aim is just to constantly rotate the IP and try and avoid any that have flagged. So make sure you keep a record of the IPs you use so you can stay away from a bad one for a while.

If you have BT modem and you are constantly switching it on and off to change the IP then you may find that your system starts to struggle as the BT system will start running checks on the connection automatically, which reduces your broadband.
So if you need to change IP, try take a little time with it. I normally just go make a cup of tea and then switch back on when I come back.

If you google what is my IP it will show you a dozen web pages that show your IP. Select one that shows your address. I always keep one tab open with that web page.

If you look at it then see where it is saying you are. I don't know about Sky but with BT I can be anywhere from Scotland in the north to Lincoln in the south and I have never even been in my own region once.
If Sky is the same then you have to consider how many sky users there are within that area, as I do with BT, as any of them could have that IP five minutes after I turn it off. That is a lot of people.

So basically my IP is showing I am a BT user and nothing more.

Default dont worry

Having too many IP is not a problem...
If you use a dynamic provider you will get a new ip every time...if paypal were to ban you for this there would be nobody left
the key to it all is having different user accounts for each ebay/paypal pair and then make sure to keep the cookies for each user account.
then when you change between your user accounts, change your ip.
mobile broadband is the easiest and most convenient for this...
I set up 4 ebay/paypal accounts in my home country before i left to live overseas, using same computer with 4 user accounts and always leaving cookies.
My ip changed from my home country to the foreign country and no problems, as long as you keep using the same computer with your saved cookis

I sincerely retract my comment - I was not expressing myself properly at all - sorry for the weirdness caused.
