    IP addy,can it be cloned or misused?

    Have a friend who posts on an entirely different forum to this one,no gain,no for sale etc,just general chat,

    He's been accused of using 2 different id's by admin,he's adament that he doesn't have 2 id's registered and there is nothing to be gained by having 2 id's except perhaps to stick up for yourself if an argument started,

    Admin have said the 2 id's are using same ip addy and I'm just wondering how this could happen,would it have to be another user in his house connecting to same router or what?

    Yes, through a cloned Cable modem.

    So it's possible? I think he has virgin/ntl,well did have anyhow unless he's changed it

    Yes, people clone Virgin/NTL modems to sell/get free internet. These use someone elses IP.

    yeah maybe if on virgin he might not have changed password settings or neighbour could have hacked into it

    It's someone I trust 100% so how can he prove to admin on his site it wasn't him under 2 id's ,or can he not prove this

    can he prove it? or will admin assume no proof,so therefore guilty,it's a tiny forum,just local interest really,like a club,no one outside the general area would register

    I thought the Cable modems were cloned based on MAC addresses?

    Unless you have a static IP, the ISP will assign you a random IP.

    Can I ask? Who gives a crap if you have multiple login's? I have signed up a number of forums with multiple user's.

    Hope you haven't done that here:whistling:

    lol there would be nothing to gain if I did, so what would be the point?

    Well you stated you had done it on other forums, and what would they care. Just pointing out that multi's on this forum get banned...:thumbsup:
    Thus some forums do take multi's very seriously.
