When someone is banned, how does it know not to let them back in even if they try to change their name, is it by product key?

Well:

One thing is that Dial Up modems constantly get new ones by just connecting.

Also, Cable modems, when you reset them or reset your computer, there is a Possibility that you will get a new one. Or wait 24 hours...until the ISP gives you a new license.

T1,T3

Now, those guys are tricky, one thing is for sure, you cannot change your defualt gateway, but I guess that you could randomly guess numbers until your authorized.

It's irrelavent now, he's been banned. Unless another person has a question.
