Changing my IP addres
Posted on 2006-03-31
I'd like to know if its possible and how to change my IP addres.
I'm using a cable modem and a router and from what i've been checking my ISP dont let me change it by simpely logging off and on and even when a lease is over, it stays the same IP as before...
I looked arround and i saw that i can change the router's mac addres which will change it's ip but the only time i succssed with that is when i cloned my computer's mac address to the router and the IP changed to the IP i have if im connected straight to the router, however, that trick didnt work when i cloned other computer's mac addres on the network, it just wont get and IP addres... and even so i thought i was changing the router's mac addres, under product status, the mac addres stayed the same, even when the IP changed...
Then i tried to connect myself straight to the modem and change my own mac address, but all the address i tried didnt work, the mac addres changed but my computer couldnt get an IP...
So i'd like to know if there's another method to change my IP (preferably behind a router, but if its not possible then just with a modem...), and what is the reason that the mac address changing didnt work. (seemed like such a promessing solution at first :))
I'd like to be able to change my IP more then once but if there's a solution that can only do it one time i guess it more than nothing.
