hi guys,
As I have noticed the IP address of my computer is changing (the last digits), so with REMOTE_ADDR I cann't determine the right ip address, can someone tell me how to get a real IP address? thank you. 
I don't need your script, I'll try to write it myself

Your IP address is changing because it is a dynamic IP address. Some people's stay the same and have static IP addresses. This is why any method getting a user's IP is unreliable.

Too bad we couldnt get access to the MAC address associated to the IP ;)

People don't change their network cards as much......
