Change IP?

Hi,
I use zonealarm as a firewall and recently started to recieve a load of alert messages which imforms me of incoming attempts on my connection (poss. port scan.) I'm getting these alerts like every 20 seconds or so now. Is it possible to change my ip through the portal does anyone know?
Thanx

Regardless of changing your IP, you are still going to get port scans.

If you can move from one place to another, so can they.

Just keep up on security updates, and keep using zonealart, and all should be fine.

If you are that paranoid, try using a NAT router instead.

No its not. If you want to change IP you need to make a request via contact us to plusnet support explaining the reason and they may agree to change it for you.

However I don't think you could justify a change. I recall reading a plusnet user posting on adslguide who did have his IP changed (not without problems) see link here:
