Thanks for your question bentech.

It's not our desire here to help people side step security protocols on other websites however there are ways other then your IP addresse they can use to recognize you and continue to enforce their ban.

Cable ISP's in general use the MAC address of the first device connected to the Cable Modem to assign the IP address. That means, if you change your router or clone the MAC address of the WAN connection in the router and reboot the Modem and Router, you should get a new IP address.
