What you are wanting to do seems to be technically impossible;
however, by configuring certain pieces of software you will be able to
If you go to the following website
and download the Mozilla Firefox web browser, if you don't have it
already, you will be able to successfully use something known as
once installed, go to the following website:
and write down the IP address you see. This is your current IP
address. Now go to http://www.aliveproxy.com/anonymous-proxy-list/
This will list available free internet proxies that you can use. These
proxies are available from all around the world, not just the United
Once you have found a proxy you wish to try, it is time to enter it into Firefox.
Open Firefox, click Tools, then Options, then in the General tab,
click Connection Settings, now click Manual Proxy Configuration and
enter the IP and PORT listed on the www.aliveproxy.com website. In
the IP address is 18.104.22.168 and the port is 3128.
Now go back to www.proxydetect.com and see if your IP has changed. If
so you are now based in a new country. You must note that this will
only change the IP for those pieces of software that you configure to
use the proxy. You will still be using your normal IP but your
internet browsing will use the new IP you configured. Although
Internet Explorer can be configured to use this I find that it
generally ignores you and performs direct connections, so it is not
suitable for the purpose (in addition to being an inferior web browser
to Firefox anyway).
Let me know if this meets your needs and I will post as the official answer.
