My Home pc is connected via cable to my router and then my laptop connects wireless to the router for wireless internet...

I am a member of a site which will ban you if you sign onto your account with more than one IP, and i was just wondering if i sign on to my account on both laptop and PC, will it show up as two different IP's or just one as it is the same router?

Sorry for n00b question lol

Your 'outgoing' aka external IP address is the same for anything on the network (go to whatismyip.com to see it).

Your internal IPs (i.e. the ones the router gives out to each wireless device on the network) are different, but this doesn't affect your real IP address assigned by your ISP. So no, you won't get banned and every device on your network will have the same IP addy. :)

Thats a bit of a stupid idea! Whats the site if you don't mind me asking? Most people don't have a static external IP address. An IP address is usually dynamically assigned to you by your ISP. So for example if you were on Vigin Media and signed into this site then you had a power cut and your modem restarted you would most likely have a new external IP address and there fore unable to sign into this website.

if it's the same IP (via router) doesnt that mean same IP shown on forum/site?

Its a freebie site, with referrals ect

That was in the dial up days, most people now have broadband which is static.

are you sure they don't mean if you sign into mutiple accounts under one IP address? Rather than one account under multiple IP addresses.

No i think you will find that IP addresses are still dynamic. Smaller ADSL providers usually give out static addresses but larger companies will charge you extra for a static IP address.

Cant they just use cookies?

Fair enough, may well be ISP specific. I'm with virgin media though and am static.

You must have bussiness line then. Becuase i garentee that the home connection does not have a static address. I am on virgin media, I began to work from home and i needed a static address so my works frie wall rules could be satisfied. VM wouldn't give me one so I had to take out a second connection with a small company to get a static address.

It's true that if your connection is constant then generally you will keep the same IP. VM told me when i was enquiring into this that they renew IP addresses every 24 hours but if your connection is constant you generally are given the same IP back. You can prove you are on a dynamic address look at you IP. then turn off your modem. Turn it back on you will have a different external IP now.:-D

Maybe someone else in your school signed into thier account - multiple accounts under one IP. Apart from that you must be right, I just think it is a rather dumb thing to do.

Although true in the rest of your statement that might not work if no new sign-ons in blackout period, i'm with bt and sometimes i have to leave router off for ten minutes to get a new ip

The answer is no the IP address the router is given is the only one seen externally, your network is hidden behind the NAT protocol.
#17
Turn my modem off?? LOL you must be mad.

It's like my life support machine!
