Before trying any other methods to change your IP address, try turning off (or unplugging the power of) your Cable/DSL modem for five minutes. In many cases this will change your IP address. However, if that does not change your IP address, repeat the process for 8 hours (overnight works well) instead of 5 minutes. Hopefully this will result in an IP change. If the above does not result in your IP address changing try following these steps: 1. Get to a command prompt. (START, run, cmd). 2. Type "ipconfig /release" (without the quotes, on the command line by itself). 3. Type "ipconfig /renew" (without the quotes, on the command line by itself).
