What scripts shall I use for this purpose?  Is it 'ipcheck'mentioned
below?  Can I find these scripts from Internet on search.  Or just from
Console window to find out the IP address of the broadband and notify
myself on email?

Yes, in past the broadband provider maintained this way.  Because of
many complaint from subscribers he agreed to make change that new IP
shall be assigned to each new connection.  I will find out later.  In
the worst case if it is can we have some other ways to get through.
