Dont bother with the IP-Adresses, install proper Anti-Spam-Extensions.

See http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Combating_spam for a 
MediaWiki-Helppage (and follow the links on that page to learn more), or 
have a look at 
http://www.wiki-aventurica.de/wiki/Wiki_Aventurica:Anti-Spam which is a 
short summary of measures that work for me.

I highly recommend using the QuestyCaptcha-part of Confirm-Edit to 
prevent account creation, and installing SpamBlacklist to block those 
pesky spamlinks.

For this 
kind of spam you might need to install SpamRegex or AbuseFilter, though.
