what do you mean by an IP changer...changing the IP to a static one? both pc's are most likely configured to obtain an IP address via DHCP from the router.

1. Using a proxy may be against the tournament rules.
2. Using a proxy will slow down your internet speeds.
3. They are not trully "anonymous" and I'm not sure on the legality for it.
4. Try google and search for "Proxy Lists" the first result should be "samair proxies"

Well even though you run thru a router your external IP address is the same for both PC's. That is the actual line provided by your ISP. That can only be changed by them. So when you connect to a tournament it logs your external IP address. Not the one your computer was assigned by the router.

So i highly doubt that both will be able to connect to the same tounament as both your IP's will be the same. Your external is what is detected. go to grc.com and try the shields up test. I can guarentee that from either PC it will show the same IP address. That is cause of the IP is the external one it detects.
