Your IP is assigned by your ISP. In some cases you can get a new one by resetting your modem. If not it gets tricky.

This should work. Just unplug your computer, modem and any routers. Then plug back in.

Generally, IP banning is not cool, because (I think) places like AOL use one IP address for all... may not work for you.
