Unless you use a recognized anonymity program like JonDo(Jap) most else is commercial.

Other suggestions here:

For straight IP masking this one does offer a limited free service whereby you share an IP with other network users which is then changed once every hour.

Personally, whenever I've tried out any of these anonymising apps I've always found them to be so slow that it feels like torture!
Can't comment on IPSharkk though, anyone have any experience of this one?

Having just read through the FAQ's on the ipsharkk.com website the freeware version doesn't look too appealing as it appears you actually share the use of your own personal IP address with others and vice versa! (unless I'm not understanding it correctly)

Yes, that is correct. Shared with other network users and changed every hour.

Unfortunately the very nature of services like JonDo means they route your requests through a whole nest of servers before coming back to you, and the end result is slow.

I'm no expert in this field but unless someone else can suggest a free offering I think that what you are trying to achieve might require a commercial solution.

Just reboot your router every day, you get a new IP that way. Or every 5 minutes if you want. Then you will be in the same B-block every time but the C and D-blocks change. Example:

238.173.49.202
A, B, C, D blocks

Reboot router ==>

238.173.52.190

May not work if you have cable DSL though, they have sticky IPs, that means it will change once probably but then you have that IP for a week or more. The IP is assigned for a period and is not fully dynamic.

All the ISP-generated IPs can be easily traced, so this method probably won't suit the users wanting anonymity (or pseudo-anonymity as the case may be).

If you need anonymity - go to a internet cafe, a public library, school or a public wifi location (airport lounge or mcdonalds restaurant etc).

You tend to not have the speed problems that you get with most proxy servers.
