How to change your IP address in less than 30 seconds! No installations/downloads!



1: In this video I am going to show you how to change your IP (Internet Protocol) address using a basic ‘Command Prompt’, All computers operating on Windows have the ability to perform a command prompt.

2: You may need to change your IP address for various reasons, it could be that you have been directed to by your ISP (Internet service provider, for example Verizon or AOL), or you could be trying to evade a ban from a website.

3: OK, to begin, click ‘Start’ and then ‘Run’

4: In the box that appears type ‘cmd’, this is a shortcut to open the command prompt menu.

5: A black box with text in it should appear. Now this is important, you need to enter the following into the window which just appeared exactly:

ipconfig /release

6: If you lose internet connection, this is normal and will be resolved in the next step

7: Now type exactly:

ipconfig /renew

8: Notice your internet connection is again connected and working

9: And that’s it! You should now have a brand new IP address. In some cases you may need to restart your computer for changes to take effect.

    Ok, I tried this, just for kicks & giggles…

    Before trying this, I was smart enough to create a system restore point on my computer… (was time for one anyway).
    <system restore> lol

    Next, I logged on and went to one of my own websites that is set to record the IP Address of users, and records their IP address for backend security…. if they attempt anything malicious, their IP string is recorded and saved in a log file tat is kept on a completely separate server from the core website files. it saves and records an entire string of IP addresses of UP TO 6 IP addys deep, off of each individual user visit.

    Anyway….

    I changed the IP address just as per your instructions. everything went exactly as you said it would…. I even restarted my computer, and then went back to my website in question (as a user, not admin), and it again recorded my IP address as normal. The problem, is that it recorded the EXACT same IP address as before….

    I don't think this technically changes your "IP Address". Either that, or you are using the term "IP ADDRESS" very loosely, and are speaking more of the Computer Identification Address, and not he actual Internet Access IP Address used as the internet access identifier…. Because my actual internet access IP address was NOT changed.

    I believe the IP address is more of a Router/Modem protocol change, and not something that is done on the computer itself. This may be why some of your users/readers are saying that it is not working, and others are reporting that it is….. Because the ones that ae saying that it is NOT working, are referring to their actual internet access IP Address…

    What we need, is a tutorial video on how to access a persons router/modem, and to change the settings within that…. which will give the desired IP address change that people are wanting.

    very nice video though!
