I am using a mobile broadband connection and my IP address keeps on changing quite frequently. The issue is that in some sites they will not allow this to happen more than a limited number of times. Is there any way to get back to the previous IP?

In such cases they will freeze your account for sometime (mostly 12 hours or so) and after that only you will be able to use the site again.

Most ISP's offer dynamic IP's to their domestic customer base. Should you require a static IP then contact them and request one, should they not offer static IP's then you need to change to a provider who does.

Once your dynamic IP has changed there is no way to get it back.

What sites forbid you from switching your IP address? I also have a dynamic IP from my ISP, as that's the only thing they offer here, and even though this means I cannot port forward, I never encountered any problems while browsing sites.
