    What kind of internet connection? If its dialup or most DSL, simply disconnecting and reconnecting will do it. For a cable modem, you'll need to turn it off for at least the DHCP lease period. It should then give you a new IP address, assuming its not set up to give your MAC address the same IP address every time. In that case, you'd need a new NIC or a router or NIC than you will let you change the MAC address.
