Specs: Macintosh OS 10.5.7

I'm in California. How do I change my IP address so that websites think that I'm in England? I'm trying to play English Fantasy Football, but it won't let a computer with an out of England IP address register. Can this be done?

while every pc has its own IP address your ISP modems also have their own address and since you now live in Cali your modem address says cali

Will I need to change the IP address on my computer and ISP address on my modem? Is that possible?
Many thanks for any help / advice.

What Chris is trying to tell you is that even if you change your
computers IP address, the one on your modem, the one that
your ISP gives you will still say you live in California. You won't
be able to make that one look like you are in the UK.

You'd might be able to find a proxy server to do it though.

IP addresses are issued to users by ISPs. ISPs get their IP addresses from IANA. IANA issue IP addresses in blocks and each country has its own block of numbers. The only way tou are going to get a UK IP address is to register with a UK ISP, a bit difficult if you are in California. MODEM's do not come with pre-configured IP addresses.

IP addresses are allocated each and every time the MODEM connects unless you have a static IP address which is given to you by your ISP.

Going through a proxy might help you but even that is not foolproof as some of these country specific Web sites block proxies as a matter of routine.

First disable NATting of you modem, So you can get direct link to your computer and having IP which is given by the ISP
Now you can change your Ip
ISP have VLSM(Variable Length Subnet Mask)
so your packet will not forward through the router of the ISP
Now the best practice is to change header of the packet and write source IP as you want................

Doing that will just prevent any return data from getting through as the header will have the wrong IP address. It the IP address in the header that the server uses to send the information back.

It would be alright if you were just sending information, but of you expect anything back you need the correct IP address.

Besides, disabling NAT on your router, MODEMs dont do NAT, is removing a good block to hackers.
