Can you change your ip address?

Can anyone tell me if you can change your ip address on your pc? I am an administrator of a cleaning forum and someone who we have blocked their ip address has just changed their screename and carried on. How can this be done?

Many thanks

They possibly are using a proxy or ananymising programme

i would suspect that if they are on broadband their isp may be using dynamically assigned ip addresses as mine does and i get a new ip addy each time i log on.

Thanks for replying. It looks like we are going to just keep our eyes open for the offensive posts then. :0(

Plus they could type in a dos box "ipconfig /release" without "'s and that would release that IP address, then type "ipconfig /renew" to get another one...
