Are you on dial up? if so your ISP gives you a new one each time you dial up. But if your on Broadband, you have a static IP, you need to cal you ISP for more info, thats all i can tell u.

Depends on what computer your running on, and what IP you want to change.

To change the IP in Windows, just right-click "Network Neighborhood", and select properties (Win9x/Me users skip the next step).

When the adapter page comes up. Right-Click the adapter that you want to change the IP of, and select properties.

Now this will bring up the Networking adapter properties page. Select TCP/IP, adn click properties again.

Click "Manually Configure IP" and then enter the IP, then just click the mouse in the subnet box. Click OK and your done.

Now what I recommend doing is to enable the box at the bottom of the "Networking adapter properties page", that says "Show Taskbar icon when connected", or something like that. Then all you will have to do is right-click that icon, next to the clock, and click Status. It saves a lot of time if your gonna do this a lot.

If you also unplug your cable modem for a while, you will be assinged a new IP. At least that is what happens to me using Optimum Online.

Why you need to change your IP. Banned from somewhere :naughty:

My ISP assign me the same IP address if i turn my router off for along time or not, i can request it to be changed to the support staff, thats the only way.

If your talking LAN its easyer, Monster_User has it covered.

most of these guys have it covered....

If you are behind a firewall (e.g. connected to internet through a hub) - There are two ips in this case...public...and private - Your computer will either be assigned an ip by ur hub (within the LAN/Network) or you can set your computer's ip - As for your publicily known IP, your ISP assigns you that IP whether you are on broadband or Dial-Up. In this case, you can simply restart your computer and you will be assigned a new ip. The exception to this is if you have a broadband package that has a static ip. In that case your ip will never change. I don't know if you can request a change from your ISP, some won't do it that I know.

If you are not behind a firewall/Hub then the private IP does not affect you.

If you've been banned from a game server, but have tried connecting several times, but still can't, then you have been range banned from the server. Usually those with dynamic ips (ips that change) are usually auto assigned an ip from a limited range. It takes many bans to make this happen.

If you have been banned like so...just stop doing what you're doing and they might forgive you. Good Luck.

I have multiply pcs on my home network. Sometimes my brother and I like to fiqure out ways to "boot" each other. Lately it seams yahoo has been craking down on us quite hard, even though we have asked each other to so. The system admin's at yahoo, cannot see why we would want to do this to each other, within our own home, so they will not keep banning us. Changeing IP's is the only way around their restrictions.
