Change IP address?

Is it possible to change my Public I.P address from Plusnet to BT (british telecom) I am wishing to do this so I can get access to a BT broadband forum for only BT customers who take their BB. Also to say that i'm with BT on my speedtest. Any way of doing this even by hacking?Huh

Re: Change IP address?

you'd need to find someone on a BT connection with a proxy they'd be willing to let you use.

You could get a second phone line installed (with the master socket fitted in your bedroom  Roll eyes), then get BT broadband on that new line.
Get a dual WAN load balancing router, and have the benefit of two internet connections.
This would be a simple solution to all your somewhat unusual questions.  Crazy

Yeah Very funny!!! Like you can easily pay an extra 30 quid for a new contract and BB deal!! Go and help somewhere else rather than posting sarcastic comments!!

If you hadn't noticed already, you are unlikely to get much more help around here as you are clearly choosing to ignore the previously sensible replies from the experienced members who were trying to help you, either in this or your other thread - http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,112439.0.html
I will shut up now and as you say "Go and help somewhere else"  Roll eyes

Re: Change IP address?

Just an after thought, as you can read those BT forums with a Plusnet IP address and I dare say any other, what is he on about  Roll eyes

Re: Change IP address?

maybe it's a super secret one for experienced installers only, mere IT professionals need not apply..
