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.

No connection to the internet


make sure the modem box is connected to the INTERNET port of the wireless N router. and the desktop to any of the regular Ethernet ports on the back of the wireless N router. Also try replacing the Ethernet cable that is connecting the desktop to the wireless N router.
Then check the IP address of the desktop computer - to do that, go to the command prompt by clicking on Start. Run, then type CMD and hit OK
- on the black screen type IPCONFIG
- the IP address usually starts with 192 if you have a router
- try to ping a website from the command prompt by typing PING www.yahoo.com then press enter
- if able to get the word reply 4 times, it means the computer is connected to the iinternet.. it's just that there's something blocking the connection
- if there's 4 replies, check if there's a security software installed on the computer for ex Norton, try disabling it temporarily and see if you can get online
- if there's no reply on the PING test, and you just got request timed out or host unreachable, double check the TCP/IP settings on the computer, make sure it's set to Obtain IP Address Automatically and Obtain DNS Server Address Automatically
- to check TCP/IP settings on the computer, if you have xp, go to Start>Control Panel>Network Connections then right click on Local Area Connection and click Properties, look for Internet Protocol TCP/IP , just double click on it and from there you will be able to see the status..

I think you need to specify the gateway address in your new laptop. For that you have to know the gateway address ( i,e. the IP address of your boardband router/ adsl modem.).

First, go to your old laptop, right click on My Network Places, Right click on the wireless lan connection and select properties. Click on Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) and click properties.
Take a note of the Default gateway.
Now come to your new laptop, use the procedure mentioned above to open the Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) Properties box. Type in the Default gateway address which you have noted earlier. Click ok twice. Now see if you can access the internet. If you can't then let me know the IP address configuration of both your old and new laptops.

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.
