    But doesn't the old trick of powering off your router then back still work for constant downloads?

    But doesn't switching off your router off and on again reset ip (if you have dynamic ip)???

    I think..

    i think you need a dynamic router to do that trick. Didnt they always have a limit? Like 5 downloads a day?

    The switch on-off router trick only works if your ISP gives you dynamic IP. I know that AT&T High Speed DSL provides Dynamic IPs, but Comcast and most other cable providers don't.

    And quit complaining about the download limit. It costs a lot of money for bandwith you know?

    Well, I'm going through other methods. I don't really like using torrents because I'm paranoid that they're easier to track, but it's easier than waiting 24h for the last half.

    Well i use AOL and also a netgear DG834G V3 and the trick works for me using any of the file sharing sites so guess im ok :-)))

    Is there not a setting on your pc or router that can actually change the ip address static or not?!

    Anyway i guess someone has to pay for these sites to survive so people like me can get it for free.
