I hadn't used my desktop in a few weeks and when I tried to logon to the internet through AOL and Verizon, I could not access the internet. After speaking to someone at Verizon I discovered my IP address had changed. I don't know how this happened but does anyone know how I can find out what my IP address is and "setup" that address?

Your IP Address is supposed to change, generally.

In any case, I suspect that you simply need to uninstall your AOL software and reinstall it...and follow the directions for setting up your connection.http://help.channels.aol.com/kjump.adp?articleId=219929

See data on Static IP Address and Dynamic IP Address at http://www.whatismyip.com/faq/what-is-an-ip-address.asp

If you are running AOL software, then AOL is the authority on properly setting up Internet connectivity.

In XP...to see my IP address...I just place the cursor on my connection and then look in the lower left window.

Thanks Louis. I'll try that when I get home today.
