There are programs that will do this for a price, but is there a way to use proxy IP’s instead of my normal static one when surfing on my laptop?

Well, I don’t know about an application, but you can try some free online proxies! My favorite is

It has over 20 mirrors so it will be hard to block! As well as that, since you are surfing through a proxy, you will be using that proxies’ IP Address! Good luck and have fun!

    The laptop IP is not static. But to answer the question it is done the same way as on the desktop unit, or as in XP. Hiding you IP still leaves your MAC address exposed

    Any of these firewalls, filters and network security devices can detect a proxy as soon as you connect to it. It’s actually trivial to do. All they have to do to determine if it is a proxy or a web site is to try and connect to it. If the filter gets a response the security software knows it’s a proxy and you’re toast. The only question is whether the system is set to auto block or if it emails or texts the admin and lets him do it manually, which can buy a few hours.

    Even if you do get a proxy to work for a bit what do you get? A lot of these are hacker pots designed to either steal your information or plant bots on your computer that they can use. Even if it’s not a hacker pot it’s probably loaded with advertisements as that’s how the owner is making money. In either case the owner has no incentive to provide fast response or high bandwidth. The owner of the proxy is using you and delivering very little back to you.

    At the end of the day you’re just wasting a lot of time that could be spent doing something more productive at best and risking your computer and more at the worst.
