Your IP address is a dynamic IP address that is given to you each time you dial up. When you disconnect, that IP address is freed. The odds of getting the same IP address two times in a row are very slim for national providers, but slightly more for local providers. Dynamic IP addressing saves IP address space so that the ISP can serve the same amount of customers with less IP addresses.
