I need help is there anyway to change it manually?. Thank you.
BTW im not evading a ban
As in the one supplied to you from your ISP?
I don't think you really can.
Why do you want to anyway?
well i know if u connect thru a router, it changes ur IP. and if ur already are connected, you can change the port in which ur computer is plugged in, like say the IP address to port 1, where ur comp is connected, is 22.214.171.124. if u connect to port 2 it wil be 126.96.36.199.
I got IP banned from another forum for calling someone a jack ass
If your ISP uses dynamic addressing, you can try to unplug your broadband modem (if you are on broadband) and let it sit for a minute, then plug it back in. If that doesn't work, call your ISP and have them do a DHCP flush and assign a new IP. If you are using dialup it should change when you hang up and redial. If your IP is Static, you'll have to contact your ISP and have them give you a new one. BTW, Jack ass ain't that bad. Now if you called someone a stupid ****** ****** *** ** * ***** then that would be a different story!
Unplug the modem and wait?? Damn why do so many people say that, it takes way too much time.
If your ISP assigns static IPs, you're screwed for an easy way. You'll have to call and ask for a change.
For Dynamic IPs with a router:
Log into your router and go to the Status page and find the Release and Renew buttons.
Click Release and wait about 5 secs then click Renew and a new IP address should be assigned.
For Dynamic IPs without a router and Win9*/ME:
Start->Run type winipcfg
Select your network adaptor
Wait a few secs
For Dynamic IPs without a router Win2k/XP:
Start->Run type: cmd
At the promt type: ipconfig /release
Then type: ipconfig /renew
Get Microsoft's wntipcfg
Then follow the exact same steps as using winipcfg for Win9*/ME
I don't know who your provider is but, up here (Comcast) doing a release/renew won't work. All that does is renew the IP for the NIC, not the cable modem itself. We have to do what Comcast calls a "Power Cycle" in order to get their DHCP server to expire the lease and assign a new IP because they use the MAC address for the modem for idenity purposes, not the MAC address on the NIC card.
The plot thickens!
So you are evading a ban, just not on this board.
How about browsing the forum through an anonymous online proxy?
I agree with the above, that you can log into your router's status page and do a release and renew, but in the 3 years I've had Opt Online cable and have even done that a few times, my dynamic IP has never changed.
I think you're SOL unless you can call up your ISP and ask for a change.
If your modem is conencted straight to your PC, then the IP address for your NIC is the cable modem's IPs.
If you're connected through a router or on a network before the modem, then yes the NIC is the IP address of that network.
Also keep in mind that your cable modem might also being acting as a router, but in either case with a router you use the method mentioned for routers.
But then Comcast being the tards they are fucking up a network like TechTV then it wouldn't surprise me none that their broadband network is just as fucked.
I've been successful at changing my MAC address to force a change.
I wouldn't doubt that Comcast fucked it up. I do know that I can shut all the computers off in the house (My modem is the 1st in line then the router>switch) and go to my cousins house, I can ping and do a tracert on my IP and I get a return. If I go home, unplug the modem, get a new IP and repeat the ping with all computers off on the new IP, I get a return. Which means, the modem is holding the IP by the MAC(Balls) address.
