Knowledgebase: Shared IPs
My ISP uses dynamic IPs. Can this be the cause of the shared IP situation?

Nearly all ISPs use dynamic IPs for their customers. Dynamic just means every time you connect to the Internet, they will grant you a random IP from a range of IPs, meaning you usually never use the same IP all the time. But when you are using one specific IP, no other client can be using that same IP, so it shouldn't cause any issues with our game.

Some ISPs however do share the same IP address with several of their customers, but this is different from dynamic IPs and only very few ISPs use this system (such as mobile and satellite connections, AOL, etc).
