    if you are using cable modem or adsl modem to connect to web, your ip address comes via dhcp and will not change.

    Long answer:

    A computer connected via cable or DSL is a "DHCP client". DHCP stands for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. It allows dynamic configuration of the network configuration of a host computer. The basic idea is this: When a DHCP client is turned on, it initially doesn't have an IP address assigned to it. It issues a broadcast message to any DHCP servers which are on the network. An exchange takes place during which the DHCP server assigns an IP address to the client and tells the client certain key network configuration parameters (such as name server addresses for example).

    Medium Length Answer:

    With your type of connection, your IP address is given to you by the network. You don't have a choice.

    Short Answer:

    No.
