Derek,

This is because you are using a modem on a dial up line.
You get a new IP adress each time you dial in, because each time you are
on a different
modem at your supplier.

Some suppliers can give you a fixed IP adress at extra charges.
You can contact your supplier for that.

But generally most people are on a non-fixed IP adress and it really does
not
matter.

Regards,
Luc

CU-SeeMe users looking for reflector IP adresses?
My reflector list can be found (amongst a lot of good Mac related and
other
stuff) on http://www.manzione.com Look at the columns
section.
