Windows 7: How to get round IP address ban?

How to get round IP address ban?

I use a certain site to download jpeg files for creating earth terrain data. Unknown to me they put a ban on IP addresses which download heavily from the site. As far as I know, just changing my PC IP address won't help (would I have to change the router address?); in any case, as soon as I change settings for IPV4 in Local Area Connection Properties from automatic, I can't connect to any websites any longer: I don't know what IP address etc. to choose if I select one myself

Or maybe I need to use a proxy server?

It's not that I have done anything illegal here, in a global sense, I just downloaded too many GBs in a set time period I suppose (and as I say, I was unaware that such a rule existed). If I can't get the rest of the data downloaded, weeks of work are going to go down the drain. What's the simplest way to get around this problem?

I am in the process of building a home server out of the oodles of spare PC bits I have aquired over the years and thought to use an ATI Rage Pro graphics card in it as it has no fan, thus less noise (plus I only want it in there to set it up and allow the PC to boot after, as the box will used...
