So I am guessing that you want to access a web site many times in a single browser session in different tabs? And the web site is telling you NO.?

if so then your probably out of luck.

So it's not possible to let the lease expire on my IP address?

You can let your internal IP address expire by going into command prompt and type
ipconfig /release

Your internal IP address will be released and unable to access the Internet or your internal network. To get an internal IP address from DHCP type in command prompt
ipconfig /renew

But like others have mention most ISPs use a single IP address to connect to websites. If you do a web search "What is my IP address" you will find sites that will display your external IP address. Sometimes you can change this address by doing a power-cycle of your DSL/Router but other than that there is not much else you can do.

Hope this Helps,
