Thanks for your question easylaugh.

Most IP addresses can be changed but we would need more specific information to help you.

Are you on a dialup, DSL , Cable or T-1 type internet connection? Is this in your home or at work? If it's at home,are you using a router?

FYI: Changing your IP address does not help protect your identity. Your personal information such as Name, Address and Phone Number are not connected to your IP Address except in the office of your ISP and that information can only be obtained by Legal Professionals by way of a subpoena.
