pls can anyone tell me how can i find out whether i am having a static or dynamic IP address ??
which net r u using ??if u r using a broadband connection provided by ..ISP like sify ,iqara and all ..u must be having a static ip !
just Google for How to know My IP... at least 100 site provides service to know ur IP... like few belllow... visit at lest 10 to make sure they r giving u same result.. write it down...
DC the net... and Reconnect it again... if Static then when u visit the sites again... the IP would be same if Dynamic then it would have changed...
hope this helps...
You can also view your current IP in your Router page (192.168.1.1)
there is also a firefox extension for tht
i dont think SIFY has static IP , cause earlier i was using SIFY connection and i was able to bypass rapidshare time limit using HIDE IP platinum but now i,m using net provided by my cable operator and now i'm not able to bypass it, does this means i am having static IP ??
thnx every one for reply.
did u tried what i wrote?? because if u have then u would known what type of IP u have....
what made u so sure that he is useing DataOne/ADSL??
Sify is not givin static IP, if want to use unlimited radipshare downloads, then after a download just logoff & login again, and u can continue with ur downloads.
yes i tried ur method it is showing different IP after i login again
simple !! then ur Ip is dynamic..
Yeah, that's right. If you get a different IP address after login.Then you have a
'Dynamic IP address'. If it's static, it would be the same.
is dynamic ip safer that static ip in case of hacking.. and do any one know why some service provider provides dynamic and some static???
dynamic ip is 'relatively safer' and beneficial to the isp provider (wtf you wanna call him). But who would want to hack a home user anyway?
If you want to host a website or anything on your sys, it is just a bunch of bother.
