Just a little question here, I have a lap-top (Sony VIAO) that uses a different ISP to my usual PC that I use to access the net. Should I have a different IP Address in here at ECN?. Some of my posts in the OSD Area should be under a different IP number, but does anyone care? I love this lap-top though, even though it does get a little warm!. Also, when are the days going to start where you slip a card into your PC and get Wireless Access to the Net going to happen?.
Unless your two service providers share a common pool of dynamically allocated IP addresses (unlikely unless one is a subsidiary or affiliate with the other), then yes, you'll have a different IP address.
Have you posted here with the second ISP yet? I just had a look at the addresses on some of your posts in the non-U.S. area and they are all showing up as belonging to Telecom Internet Services of NZ Telecom.

Mike, we use it in the office, and I'm so glad, I just take my home laptop to the office, it gets a new IP addresse (different from at home with adsl,) and it is on the net, with a remote control you can use it as u like. Also if I need anything to take home just sinchronize the mobile phone with the office pc, and take it home, and sinchronize with my home notebook. I don't even need to carry the notebook.
The world is full of beauty if the heart is full of love

Well, We might as well forget about me owning a laptop for the time being. I had a visit from the boys in blue this afternoon, they confiscated it and told me I was lucky not to be charged with recieving stolen goods. I was sold the thing at a second-hand price, by a guy I have known for a while, that told me that he was going overseas and he wouldn't be needing it anyway. Believe me, he'll be having a trip of one sort when I get a hold of him!. Grrrr!.

That puts a different spin on your initial post. Maybe you can get better responses if you provide all the information when you ask the question. Try "I have a STOLEN lap-top that uses a different ISP".
