    Well... i changed my ip but in a different way and it was much harder ( windows xp ) this looks like a quickfix and im not sure this is going to work, the only reason im change my ip is becuase of cable companys tryign to hack me on ports 20003 etc and i thought if i report it guess what will happen... nothing so i thought id change my ip, anyway i will give this time but it probaly wont work and im going to have to try that oringal web site again <_<... so in the end im giving this a 2 becuase it hasnt got much detail to get a new ip address and on another wbe site it is much more detailed on how to change it ( not for the newbie ;) ) and i managed to ... so the difference to this web site and the other one i visited , the one i visited before worked.. so in the end im giving this a 2 becuase of it slack of detail and doesnt work... waste of time dont try.

    Ok i have to post this again then... first off i jus tmessaged a post but it came up as " becuase its short and accurate " or it was a consirdence that i manage to click on it and someone else did at the exact same time... anyway im here to complain about the ip renew and release ( vise versa ), im here to say that this information is a waste of time and should be changed asap but a real programmign or expirence person who knows what they talking about. This looks like a quick fix answer and is very undetailed let alone it doesnt work ( given it time but very bad in hope... ) adn hopefully this gets changed becuase it doesnt do anything just changes it back to the oringal ip which is what we dont want ;). Btw, for other information im running a windows xp home edition and even if you do message back i wont be able to see it becuase my msn ddoesnt load up into the message box just a common 404 error :@. So, noreply@noreply.com ;) just fix this problem so rela people can release and renew the ip for REAL not wasting their time, i hope i have pointed this out and will be fixed asap. Thanks for reading ( p.s fake name btw sorry ;) )

    This doesn't give you a new IP address. How do you do it without restarting your computer/modem?
     
  • Comment #10 (Posted by Koen)
    Rating
    IF this doesn't give you a new IP its might be because of your ISP's DHCP that keeps your MAC adress in its tables for a certain amount of time. Try changing your MAC adress and after it changed change it back to the default MAC. Then the ip should be different for sure.
     
  • Comment #11 (Posted by Koen)

    btw , changing an ip to stop a hacking attempt (IF it is a real hacking attempt) is just plain stupid. This is just avoiding the problem instead of solving it. Secure your servers!!! thats the solution..
     
  • Comment #12 (Posted by kristof)
    Rating
    this is changing your ip adres before the lease time has expired .. but when the DHCP server provides youy the same adress, it's not going do change ... maybe you have to change your mac adres of your nic, or just stop hacking... ;)

    very helpful thanks, i am trying to get around a belking router firewall on my home network. Do you know of any way i can do this. My dad has placed this on here so i cany use msn after 9:00 this is a pain. He is using the client exception filters to opperate this. It currently blocks my laptop wuth ip addresses 192.168.2.4 and my desktop with ip address 192.168.2.3 This is the ip assined by the router i belive. If i log on with a third device before i do so with either my laptop or desktop will this alow me past the vlient filters on those ip addresses?

    Okay, my computer got keylogged somehow.. and the keylogger got my msn email. When I asked him how he did that he said through my IP adrress because i had gone on his site...and now he has my IP adrress and i don't know what to do... I've been searching the internet on how to change my IP but none of these sites have helped. The whole " renew release " thing just sets ur IP to 0.0.0 and wen u renew it, it sets it back to what it was before you released it. ANYBODY HELP?!?!!

    QUESTION: How do I release and renew an IP address? ANSWER: Follow the appropriate platform-specific instructions below to release and renew your IP address. Windows 2000/XP: We recommend using one of two methods to release and renew your IP address: ENABLE/DISABLE THE CONNECTION: Go to the Control Panel, then open Network Connections. (If you're not in Classic view, open Network and Internet Connections, then Network Connections from there.) Under LAN and High-Speed Internet, there should be one or more items called Local Area Connection. If there are more than one, use the one in which the computer monitor icon is blue instead of gray. Right-click on the icon and choose Disable. Wait for a few seconds for the connection to disable complete, then right-click on it again choose Enable. Once the connection is completely enabled, the IP address should have been successfully renewed. enjoy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Win XP is the biggest junk software I've ever seen. Doesn't even have "winipcfg" like Win98 so I can change IP address easy when I want. Damn the XP crap, I wish my new PC could run on old Win98. I'd still use those insted of the super slow XP.

    If it doesn't change your I.P. address. If you have a router it is just changing the computers I.P. not the router, as this has it's own I.P. address, so websites can't detect your computer's one and attackit.

    Pffff, that will not work. Just un-lock <> un-power the modem wait 1 week and you have got a brand new IP. To get e new relaise off your ip address tack's taks about 1 week. I all is what the policy off your IPS is. Mine is a week.

    If a hacker has your ip then i think he will immediately search for your host name. So if he ha got your host address then he can always knows your ip and changed ip to, because your host name never changes.

    It worked! I don't know why but it did. I had tried to install a linksys adapter and it didn't work and then I uninstalled it and I couldn't get online anymore. When I tried to renew the IP address it wouldn't. But this did the trick. Thak you!

    for all you fucking stupid dick eds, don't type the ipconfig into run when you click run type in cmd then click enter and then do what that dipshit tells you to do, but then you do all that and found out you have wasted your time, there is ways of doing it, but they take a while and this is a shortcut that just dont work!

    ok, it does NOT change your ip adress, but it does renew it, to change your ip adress, you have to do something completely different. also remember to type "cmd" (no quotes) into the run, and then use the command prompt

    if this didn't work then you've got some other problem. Releasing your ip lets go of the old ip address (so when you renew you don't have a confliction). There is nothing inaccurate about this post, if it didn't work for you there is something else you aren't taking into consideration about your connection. Stop complaining people.

    I have already done all that go to run type "cmd" then ipconfig/release then ipconfig/renew but THAT is where I get stuck and it's frustrating because all the other intructions on the web are the same but what if it doesn't work? that's what I need to know.

    This is the whole procedure: Click the Start menu button on the Windows taskbar. Click Run... on this menu. 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. Type 'ipconfig' (without the quotes) to view the status of the computer's IP address(es). If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'ipconfig /release' to let go of the address. Type 'ipconfig /renew' to obtain a new IP address (whether or not the computer is holding a current address). Tips: 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. 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. What You Need: WinXP, Win2000, or WinNT IP network connectivity

    Hello, to change your IP, you should disconnect/ turn off your router, and reconnect again. this would change your IP, another thing, the command ipconfig/renew wouldn't work if you are connecting to an ISP, because this IP is given through the session implemented from the ISP side (there is many procedures taken from the ISP side to give you that IP).. Anyway, I think this command has an affect only if you are directly connected to a LAN, not WAN...

    Ha a bunch of you guys have it all wrong. This does work however, one of you mentioned that your Internet Providers DHCP server DOES in fact keep your MAC address stored, and LEASES your machine a IP address for a certain amount of time. Another individual mentioned that you cant change a IP address because its static. . . .WRONG! You cannot have a DHCP server that hands out static ip's because they would NEVER change haha I digress, now one of you said that you can just change your MAC address, WRONG again, you cannot physically change it because it is built into your onboard ethernet port or network adapter, you can however SPOOF your mac address (Search for a MAC address spoofer) Ultimately, to change your ip if your IP DHCP servers store your mac, all you need to do is spoof your MAC, Ctrl + R, cmd, ipconfig /release, ipconfig /renew and BAM!!! you have a new IP, this works well for movie websites that monitor your ip and restrict you to a certain watch time, or torrent sites that do the same. Now ive said too much, run along kitties and enjoy!

    Two very important things not mentioned here: 1. this will work only for modems set to obtain ip address dynamincally (DHCP) 2. even if u do get a new ip address each time you connect to your ISP, this method will NOT work if you have your modem configured in router mode (i.e. it connects automatically when you switch on your modem w/o entering u/n & p/w) and your computer's NIC has a static address. You then need to connect the modem in non-router mode (directly). Hope this helps all u guys grumbling abt this.

    This did not work. Period. The only way I got the networked computer with crossover cable to finally recognize IP was to bridge the connections (Net adapter and Wireless Internet) on the computer that has the internet connection. A whole lot of farting around with no noise. This problem took 10 days of time, and was fixed only by trying something just for the hell of it out of sheer desperation.
