    Default Codetel took away my US IP address

    I recently signed up for a new Internet service through Codetel after cancelling a service plan started over 10 years ago. During that time I must have had a US IP address, as I could access Rhapsody and all screens, ads, etc. were in English. Now I have been assigned a DR IP address. Pain in the butt! Lost my access to Rhapsody and get all kinds of Spanish pop-ups. Any idea how to get a US IP address????

    Auto Hide IP - Hide Your IP Address, Surf Anonymously, Protect Your Identity, Guard Against Hackers

    You can get it with this. Or any country you want. I think you can try it for free and see if it works for you. Works for me over here.

    Codetel didn't take away your US IP address. You switched providers, and your new provider (Codetel) has a DR IP address. That's it. If you want to access US-exclusive content, sign up for a VPN. I use vpntraffic, it's good and cheap.

    My apologies, Rubio. I failed to say that the original provider was Codetel, also. So how did I switch providers????

    Codetel have never supplied ip's based in the USA as far as I'm aware. I have had a DSL account since 97 and always had locally based IP's.

    Unless you have a ping or trace route prior to the switch nothing you can do. Get a VPN as has been suggested above.
