Prevention from detecting IP

If you wish to block someone from tracing routing or pinging your IP address you would need to get either a software or a hardware firewall. It is difficult to spoof an IP but it is possible. The only time you will need to worry about this is if youare an admin of a network you need to keep people out. The in this case you will need to set up your routers and firewalls to recognize if this person is within the network. If you need any further assistance please contact me.

There is a service on the net that will hide your ip. I forgit what it's called but basically you surf using one of there ip's and they don't track it or record the traffic... supposedly. There was a story in the news where the government was going to mandate to the service that they have give the government special access to the users using their anonymouse service. Just lookup anonymous web surfing in a search engine and I'm sure you'll come up with a bunch of ideas and services

These services named "anonimizers". In general it's proxy servers which accepts requests from you and re-send requests to target using their own addresses.

You can only spoof an IP Address if you are on the same broadcasting network as the target. To avoid being traced you will have to use a Proxy Server. A list of free proxy server is available at: http://tools.rosinstrument.com/proxy . To configure aproxy server in IE, in IE 5.5 and up click on Tools> Internet Options > Connections > Lan Settings and give it a proxy address and port number.
You can also check if the proxy server you are using reports that you are connected from a proxy server by going to: http://www.all-nettools.com/pr.htm. If you get the message Proxy Server Detected then the proxy server you are using reports it.
You can also use an Anonymity Provindig server. They act different then a proxy. using APS has the advanantage that some of them use SSL which means that even your ISP can't know what you are doing since it's encrypted. Here is a list of APS:
with SSL Support:

http:///www.anon.de
without ssl support:
http://@nonymouse.com
http://www.anonymizer.com
