So, could someone tell me how to change my IP address or give me a link to a ip address changer? Thanks.

I don't think you can. I think you need to buy a whole new router in order for it to be changed. But I'm not 100% sure on that.
To actually change your IP address you need to contact your internet service provider (ISP) and request a change. However, you can disguise yoru IP using a proxy server. Just google free proxy and use one of the sites.
There are two general ways of having an IP address: static and dynamic. Most probably you have a dynamic address assigned to you automatically by your internet provider. In that case changing your IP can be done in two ways - don't connect to the internet for some time and guess when your current address gets recycled to someone else, then the automaton will give you a different one when you connect again, or just ask your provider to assign you a differnt one, which he'll most probably refuse. More chances if your ISP assigns constant addresses.
You could of course try to change your system settings to use a chosen, constant address, but it will most probably get into a fight with your providers infrastructure and refuse to connect to the internet. With that sort of question I assume you're using Windows (linux users tend to know things better and mac users are used to not having a choice ;P) so you need to go into your 'network connections' panel, right click your active connection, go into properties, select TCP/IP (most probably v4 is still used above v6, the irony) go into its properties..and you should see things clear from there.
Or use a proxy. That won't change your address, but'll appear to the untrained "eye" with the proxy servers IP instead. Like spin said.
Everytime you reset your router it will change unless you have a made your ip static or atleast it does for me.
I thought you were gonna ask us for our IP addresses! xD Anyway, I'm really not sure. Go with their answers. ^
How do you find you server number?
