Wondered if anybody could help me get a new ip address

Postby RuffGem on Thu Apr 27, 2006 8:27 pm

Hi, right now I'm really trying to get a new ip address, does anybody know how to do this? I don't know if I'm in the right place to ask this question, so I apologize if I'm in the wrong, but would greatly appreciate any help, thanks!

It sounds like you're referring to the IP address of your computer.

If you're using dial-up, then it's as simple as hanging up and then dialing up again to your ISP.

If you're on ADSL or cable, you likely have a dynamically assigned IP ... in this case, power off your system (modem, computers, and router), wait a few minutes, and turn everything back on.

Disclaimer: in the above cases, your ISP may have a small pool of IP addresses available, so it's possible you may get the same IP address again, even after performing the above steps.
