How To: Change Your Ip In Less Then 1 Minute

1. Click on "Start" in the bottom left hand corner of screen
2. Click on "Run"
3. Type in "command" and hit ok

You should now be at an MSDOS prompt screen.

5. Type "exit" and leave the prompt
6. Right-click on Network Places or "My Network Places" on your desktop.

You should now be on a screen with something titled "Local Area Connection" or something closed to that, and, if you have a network hooked up, all of your other networks.

8. Right click on "Local Area Connection" and click "properties"
9. Double-click on the "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" from the list under the "General" tab
10. Click on "Use the following IP address" under the "General" tab
11. Create an IP address (It doesn't matter what it is. I just type 1 and 2 until i fill the area up).
12. Press "Tab" and it should automatically fill in the "Subnet Mask" section with default numbers.
13. Hit the "ok" button here
14. Hit "ok" button again

You should now be back to the "Local Area Connection" screen.

15. Right-click back on "Local Area Connection" and go to properties again.
16. Go back to the "TCP/IP" settings
17. This time, select "obtain an IP address automatically" .
18. Hit "ok"
19. Hit "ok" again
20. You now have a new IP address

With a little practice, you can easily get this process down to 15 seconds.

Goodluck,

Can't connect to the internet using Vista OS on Compaq laptop. Using a WNDR3400-100NAS Netgear router. It finds the router and it labels it as an unidentified network and it will not complete the connection to the internet.


I am assuming you HAVE connected before.

Here is how to fix that corrupted DNS cache in vista.

1. Click the Microsoft Vista Start logo in the bottom left corner of the screen
2. Click All Programs
3. Click Accessories
4. RIGHT-click on Command Prompt
5. Select Run As Administrator
6. In the command window type the following and then hit enter: ipconfig /flushdns
7. You will see the following confirmation:

Windows IP Configuration
Successfully flushed the DNS Resolver Cache.

After that in the same command window type

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /renew



That should clear up the issue. Odds are you were sharing an IP address with someone else on the network.
