Hey guys, I was hoping someone can help me out with my confusion about my ip

I have 3 computers on my isp. When I check for their ip's on "whatsmyip.com" they all have the same ip, but when I check manually, its different.
I know there is something called static, and dynamic ip's..can u have both?

And If I use one computer to post on a forum and use another one to post on the same forum, would it show that I'm the same user if the administrator checks it out?

The IP that is shown at whatsmyip is actually the IP of your ISPs exit node out into the Internet. Going backwards from the node to your modem, the modem has a different IP. Then to your router that has yet another. Then it splits off to your 3 PCs. Each also having different IPs. That is a very simple explanation.

So, to the online world, I could be 3 different users?

No. Any one seeing your IP, or sites that log IP`s only see`s the one that you see when you visit whatsmyip.
