You can trace back the Dynamic IP up to your ISP. And a law enforcement office can trace it back up to you the user of that IP at that point of time from the ISP.

But Dinesh I think ISP allocate Dynamic IP by using subnetting or distribute IP from a pool of IP.So in this case whenever a user connect to internet he get new IP from ISP and i think its not possible to maintain the record of that or trace of it. only they can trace the state or region at the time of allocation not who are using it..

PLease correct if i am wrong

Its mandatory for the ISP to record all IP leases. they always link to to a customer ID by phone number in case of a broadband, SIM number in case of a datacard and username in case of a wireless/wimax.

of the 3 data cards i've used... It works like a VPN and gets you a ip lets say in that has gateway of -> that gets to a gateway of 122.x.x.153 -> so when you chk myipaddress.com from your datacard -you will get 122.x.x.153. This is how it used to be.. havnt used one for the last 6 months.

You can also connect on your datacard and do a tracert somedomain.com and see the traffic traversal...

Yes, is very easy, but must be a public ip (not trough NAT).
If your ISP assaign ip no trough a NAT, just go to http://www.dyndns.com/services/dns/dyndns/
You must register (will be given a name in the dyndns domain, something like yourname.dyndns.com)  and after that download dyndns program and install it. this program start with windows (you must use windows) and connects to web to send your ip to dyndns after that they maps your ip to yourname.dyndns.com.
then you can access your computer from everywhere.
