I guess my question is, Why? With dial up your IP is changed with every connection. The IP belongs to your ISP and is utilized as each connection is made. It's dynamic, not a static IP.

If your ISP has different dial in numbers you can try a different number. That would give you a different acess point. Who is your ISP? Da Animal is right ever time you reconnect you are subject to receive a different IP address.
If you don't mind would you describe the problem that makes you believe it's you IP address that is your problem. We would love to help.
