Have Brighthouse Modem connected to Netscape Wireless Router, what would be the best way to hide one's IP address so that can browse the web anonymously.

The only two ways that I know of are using TOR, and using a VPN.

But that just makes finding out who you are more difficult.

Total anonymity is impossible on the web. Otherwise the web becomes useless. If no one knows your IP when you send a request for data how does it know which machine to deliver it to. By anonymizing you're adding a middle man who knows your real IP.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)


A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)


"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

TOR is free, but a VPN is not.

I find VPN for free on this page http://www.idcloak.com/vpn-price/unmetered-vpn-service-pricing.html and I try it too, and connection is fast and they have good service too
