    Try a different modem. Are you using some Cable modem or a telephone (POTS) modem> It is not unlikely that he identifies you on your MAC address.
      I am using an ISDN modem. I though that only ethernet cards have MAC addresses. Does PSTN and ISDN modems have MAC addresses as well? And if they do how can hid bot read my modem's MAC address?? p.s. Thanks for your reply and i am sorry for this isnt a perl question but i didnt knew where else to ask, please forgive me...

        You have to login to connect to Internet. You login via a radius server with a username and password. You could change your modem, MAC, whatever until you go blue in the face. You say you LOG IN TO AN ISP WHERE SOMEONE DOES NOT LIKE YOU.

        THEY will always know it is you - you tell them I AM NIK from the moment you log in to YOUR INTERNET CONNECTION, not an IRC whatever. Login to another ISP, connect, IRC, and see if they can find you then. If so go to plan 2.

        Plan 2 is new modem, and new ISP. You need both as you ruled out new ISP with plan 1.

    Here is some advice. Grow up. Learn to spell. Learn to ask good questions. Learn to not be bothered by such.

    Learn Perl.

    And please keep your off-topic questions like this for the chatbox.

      I am sorry for my question, but this thing that is happening to me is really bugging me, so please do answer me.
