Hello June R Boyd,

If you want to change your IP address then you have to use  a proxy server so that you can get your desired result. But if you want a permanent solution then you have to use HOTSPOT shield and every time you use your internet then you can automatically get converted to any other IP address. So you can do that in an easy way by using a shield.
