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.

I cant conect to the intornet. im using cable can u help mi.


First thing is check and see if you have a valid IP address (Start, run, CMD enter) type (IPCONFIG /All ) this will give you the IP address information. If result of IP address is 0.0.0.0 or 169.254.x.x then you don't have connectivity with your broadband connection (Bad Cable, Bad NIC, Other communication issue etc)
If no valid IP address, the 1st thing is to power off system, power off any router you may be using and power off the broadband modem. Wait 3 minutes. Power on broadband modem, wait a minute to let it reset, power on Router (If you have one) wait a minute for it to reset, power on system and test your connection. If no change, try a different computer at that connection see if it can access the internet. If another system works, it is likely the Network Interface Card (NIC) which on a Dimension 2400 is part of the motherboard (Buy a PCI NIC for $10)
If you have a valid IP address, boot to the safe mode with networking (F8 at boot) then see if you can connect, if so then your issue is software based (Firewall, security software, possible virus) If it doesn't connect then there could be issue with your TCP/IP protocol settings. If you can't connect in safe mode with net, reboot to normal mode, then right-click your local area network connection and click REPAIR and see if that doesn't resolve. If no change try an anti-malware program like Malwarebytes

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

I want to diasble my router firewall and cant fiquere where its at


Disable router firewalls by logging in to the administration interface of your router and looking for a firewall section.

To log type http://192.168.0.1

The administration interfaces differ depending on the manufacturer and model, so your wireless router might not have a firewall section. If it does, click on that section and turn off the firewall.
Step2Forward a port. If the firewall is preventing an external computer from connecting to your internal client, you will need to forward a port to your client. Step3Find your internal IP address. Step4Click on "Start -> Run..." and enter "cmd" into the box. When the command-line pops up, enter "ipconfig" and hit "Enter." Find your IP address in the statistics that are printed out. Step5Refer to your software's documentation to find which port number must be forwarded. Step6Log in to your router's administration interface. Step7Click on "Port Forwarding" or an equivalently named section. The name of the section will differ depending on your router's manufacturer and model. Step8Add, on the correct port, a forward to your IP address. You will have to update this port forward in the future if your IP address changes. If your IP address changes often, ask your network administrator for a static IP address. This will fix your problem. Don't forget to rate my help! :-)

I have a zyxel p66ohw router connected to my pc via an ethernet card, everything is fine untill my son logs on with his playstation 3, or my wife logs on with her laptop then i cant connect everytime i try...


Make sure that your TCP/IP properties are set to "Obtain an IP address automatically". If you still cannot connect after you change that, and after waiting for a couple of minutes, then open a command prompt and type "IPCONFIG". Make a note of the address at "Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :" That's the address you need to go to to access the modem's settings..You'll need an ID and password. These would be in the modem's manual.
---to find tcp/ip properties---
It depends from PC to PC, but, try this:
Start (Bottom left of your screen)
Settings
Network Connections
Local Area Connection
Properties
Internet Protocol TCP/IP
Properties

That's how it is on my PC.

Cant connect to the internet it says that theres limited or no connection for my dwl-g520


if you have security enabled then the passkey you typed is wrong, or you have told windows to repair the connection, this is the wrong thing to do as it changes the ip address, go to your network connections in control panel of whichever connection you are using go to the properties>TCP/IP laine>properties, then click the obtain an ip address automatically button and ok.

Close window, restart pc if necassary and try again.
