...will it change my IP address and make it seem like I'm logging in from a new location? Just making sure I don't get any surprise bans if I get a new computer lol. Should I go ahead and send a support ticket if I get a new computer?

I believe the IP address is based off of your internet router's IP, not your individual computer's IP. So you should be able to use any computer in your household on Points2Shop, as long as they are all hooked up to the same internet connection.

Evrything should be fine, just make sure you always sign in to your internet, and are not using a proxy.. :]

Okay, so if I get a new router (or add a wireless router to my existing router), it will change my IP address?

No. I'm just getting a new computer and possibly a new router.

No your IP address won't change, it usually does change if the router has been reset or turned off for a while.
