Change ip address


How To Change Your IP Address





How do I change my IP? There are MANY methods to change your IP. Some methods will work for you but may not work for someone else and vice versa.

If your IP is static, then you CAN’T change it without contacting your ISP.
If you have a long lease time (explained in this article) on your IP then you won’t be able to change your IP without cloning your MAC address, which I’ll explain later in this article.
It definitely helps if you know how the IP is being assigned to you.
You can read our DHCP definition to get a better understanding.
What is an IP lease time? IP lease time is the amount of time your ISP determines you’ll be assigned a particular IP. Some IP lease times are just a few days and other IP lease times could be set for a year or more. This setting is completely up to your ISP.
One of the easier methods to change your IP is to turn off your modem/router/computer overnight. Then turn it back on the following morning. This method WILL NOT work if your ISP has a long lease time set for your IP.
The following method will ONLY work if your computer is being assigned your external IP and not a router.
How to determine if your computer is being assigned the external IP
If your connection is direct to your computer and your computer gets the public IP and not a router, you can try this:
For Windows 2000, XP, and 2003
1. Click Start
2. Click Run
3. Type in cmd and hit ok (this opens a Command Prompt)
4. Type ipconfig /release and hit enter
5. Click Start, Control Panel, and open Network Connections
6. Find and Right click on the active Local Area Connection and choose Properties
7. Double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
8. Click on Use the following IP address
9. Enter a false IP like 123.123.123.123
10. Press Tab and the Subnet Mask section will populate with default numbers
11. Hit OK twice
12. Right click the active Local Area Connection again and choose Properties
13. Double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
14. Choose Obtain an IP address automatically
15. Hit OK twice
16. Go to What Is My IP to see if you have a new IP address

For Vista
1. Click Start
2. Click All Programs expand the Accessories menu
3. In the Accessories menu, Right Click Command Prompt and choose Run as administrator
4. Type ipconfig /release and hit enter
5. Click Start, Control Panel, and open Network and Sharing Center. Depending on your view, you may have to click Network and Internet before you see the Network and Sharing Center icon
6. From the Tasks menu on the left, choose Manage Network Connections
7. Find and Right click on the active Local Area Connection and choose Properties (If you’re hit with a UAC prompt, choose Continue)
8. Double-click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
9. Click on Use the following IP address
10. Enter a false IP like 123.123.123.123
11. Press Tab and the Subnet Mask section will populate with default numbers
12. Hit OK twice
13. Right click the active Local Area Connection again and choose Properties
14. Double-click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)
15. Choose Obtain an IP address automatically
16. Hit OK twice
17. Go to What Is My IP to see if you have a new IP address

Some people have inquired about manually assigning their IP address. This IS possible, but you run a very high risk of your ISP banning you from connecting to the internet. To manually change your IP, follow the steps above for your Operating System. In step 9 or 10, depending on your O/S, enter an IP similar to the one displayed in the command prompt window. For example, if the IP displayed in the command prompt window is 75.1.2.3, change yours to 75.1.2.4. You’ll also need to manually enter the Subnet, Gateway and DNS Server IP addresses as well. If the new IP you give your computer doesn’t work, chances are someone else on the ISP network has already been assigned that IP. You’ll need to move on to the next one and keep trying until you find an open one. However, some ISPs match up your MAC or modem data to the IP that’s been assigned. If those 2 things don’t match up, you won’t be able to connect no matter what. If your router gets the IP and not your computer, you’ll need to http in to your routers interface and manually assign the IP there. It’s pretty much the same method as assigning the IP to your computer. The method that varies is in how you reach your routers interface. You can get the instructions from your manufacturer’s website.

How to check and change you computer IP address in Windows XP

1. You will need to open your Control Panel. Note there is several ways to do this.
XP Start Menu it is on the right side of the start menu.
Classic Start Menu it is under Settings

2. Next you need to make sure you are in classic view. Note if you have not been in Control Panel before you most likely will not be in classic view. To put Control Panel in classic view click on the classic view option in the upper left hand corner.

3. Now Control Panel should look something like this. Here is where you would click on Network Connections.

4. Right click on Local Area Connections and select properties.

5. Next highlight (click on to highlight) Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click on the Properties button.

6. Next you will want to check your network settings. Note in most cases you want these set to obtain automatically. However you may need to change the IP address to a static IP address to access router or printer. Example if the routers IP 192.168.1.1 then you would set the static IP address to 192.168.1.100. Note the last group that I set as 100 could be any number from 1 through 254 as long as it was not in use by another device. So in this case you could not use 192.168.1.1 because it is already used by the router. In addition after you get access to the device you can aways change its IP to fit your networks schema.
**Note I will be adding other links later to this article regarding other changes to this section**

7. Click OK

8. Click OK

After this all your changes should be set. Note some time you will need to reboot your computer to have the changes take full effect.

Your IP address is a series of numbers that identify your specific computer on the Internet.

Click "Change adapter settings."
Right-click the network you want to change and click "Properties."
Click the "Networking" tab.
Put a check either next to Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) or Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and click "Properties."
Click the radio button next to Obtain an IP Address Automatically if you want Windows to assign one, or click "Use the following IP address" to manually change it.
Enter the requested information and click "OK."

IP Address Problem Duplicate address. ipconfig /renew causes errors


Go to Control Panel, then Network Options. Right click the "Local Area Connection" and click properties. Double click the TCP/IP and once that opens you can specify a different IP address manually for that pc which is different from the one your currently being assigned. If you need to see what address your currently pulling, when in the Network Options, Right click the Local Area Connection and click on Status. Click the Support Tab and then show Details. This will give you the current IP address, the Subnet Mask, the Gateway address and the DNS address(s). When specifying a new IP address, only change the last number to something higher than what it is now. If you currently have 192.168.1.5 for instance, specify a new address that is like 192.168.1.16. For the rest of the info, make it the same as what you saw under details. once you do that and hit OK a couple times, it will change it and resolve the IP address conflict for good. :)

Cheers!

Windows system error: "an IP address conflict wit...


This error indicates that you have two devices on your network that have the same ip address assigned to them.

If you have have ip addresses manually assigned to your network devices you can open a command prompt and enter IPCONFIG, this will tell you what the ip address is of the device that is giving you the error. This ip address is assigned to another device on your network.

You can either change the ip address of the device you are receiving the error from or find the device with the same ip address and change that one.

Alternatively, if you have a router that that has DHCP enabled you can change the properties on your network adapters to obtain the ip address automatically by going to Network Connections, right click on LAN connection and click properties.

Need to renew ip address for my emachine T3516


just right click on your local connection on the desktop by the clock and click on "repair". this should clear the cache and renew the IP addy and DNS for yur connection. OR

Follow these steps to quickly release and/or renew the Internet Protocol (IP) address of a computer running Windows XP, Windows 2000, or Windows NT. Here's How:
  1. Click the Start menu button on the Windows taskbar.
  2. Click Run... on this menu.
  3. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'cmd' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears. A command prompt window appears on the screen.
  4. Type 'ipconfig' (without the quotes) to view the status of the computer's IP address(es).
  5. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'ipconfig /release' to let go of the address.
  6. Type 'ipconfig /renew' to obtain a new IP address (whether or not the computer is holding a current address).
Tips:
  1. If it is not necessary to view the current IP addresses on a computer, simply type 'ipconfig /release' or 'ipconfig /renew' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears in Step 3.

  2. To bring a computer back onto the network after moving it to a different location, or experiencing an unexpected outage, first release, then renew the IP address. Computers on DHCP networks often (but not always) re-establish network connectivity automatically
