Question about Computers & Internet
Depending on you ISP (Internet Service Provider) it may assign you a DHCP address with a certain amount lease time. in other words when your modem requests an IP to connect to the web your ISP says 'OK here use this one for this long'. When that time limit is reached it will request a new address at which point may then get a new one or it might just re-new the current one you have.
Typically your can log into your modems web interface and find a menu that will show the current status of your modem and somewhere on that page should be a release/renew button that you can click to force the modem to let go of its current IP address and request a new one. Again it might just give you the same address you just released back to you though.
Having the same IP address is not really a bad thing.
Hope that helps clear it up.
