How To Change Your Public IP Address No Matter What!! (Get A New Public IP Address!!)



How to Acquire a New IP Address

Three Methods:

This wikiHow teaches you how to change your computer's public IP address by power-cycling your router. If you want to change your private IP address, which is the address assigned to your computer when it is connected to a local network, you'll need to run a Command Prompt command on Windows or access your connection's settings on Mac.

Steps

Changing a Public IP Address

  1. Turn off your device.This should be the computer, phone, or tablet whose IP address you would like to alter.
  2. Unplug your modem and router from the Internet and power sources.This will essentially reset your Wi-Fi.
    • If your modem and router are comprised in the same unit, simply unplug the entire unit.
  3. Wait for five minutes.This should be enough time for your Internet Service Provider (ISP) to provide your network with a new public IP address.
  4. Plug the modem back in.It will begin lighting up. You'll want each light on the face of the modem to be on or flashing before you continue.
  5. Reattach the router.After a couple of moments, the router's light will begin flashing, then turn constant.
  6. Turn on your device.It should reconnect to the Internet once it finishes rebooting, though you may need to manually select a network and connect to it.
  7. Open an internet browser.You'll use the Internet browser of your choosing to view your new IP address.
  8. Type "What is my IP address" into the browser.If the IP address listed here is different than the one you saw earlier, you have successfully changed your device's IP address.
    • If you don't see a different IP address, you may need to keep your router off for a longer period of time. Try turning it off for an entire night and then re-enabling it in the morning.

Changing a Private IP Address on Windows

  1. Open the Start menu .You can click Windows logo in the bottom-left corner of the screen or press the key.
    • If you're using Windows 8, hover your mouse in the top-right corner of the screen and then click the magnifying glass icon.
  2. Type "Command Prompt" into Start.Doing so will bring up a list of search results in the Start window.
  3. Right-click the Command Prompt icon .It resembles a black box. Right-clicking it invokes a drop-down menu.
  4. ClickRun as administrator.This is near the bottom of the drop-down menu.
  5. Click when prompted.Doing so will confirm that you wish to open Command Prompt.
  6. Type inipconfigand pressEnter.This command displays your current IP information.
  7. Look at your current IP address.It's to the right of the "IPv4" value; the number here corresponds to your specific device on a local network.
  8. Type inipconfig /releaseand pressEnter.Doing so releases your IP address.
  9. Type inipconfig /renewand pressEnter.This command assigns a new IP address to your device.
  10. Look at your new IP address.It will be to the right of the "IPv4" value. If the number here is different than it was before releasing and renewing your IP address, your device's local IP address has successfully been changed.
    • This process will only work if your computer is on an Ethernet connection with other devices. Trying to change your public IP address with this method won't work.

Changing a Private IP Address on Mac

  1. Click the Apple Menu .It's the apple-shaped icon in the top-left corner of the screen.
  2. ClickSystem Preferences.You'll see this option in the Apple Menu drop-down window.
  3. ClickNetwork.This will open the Network window.
  4. Select your current connection.You'll do so from the left-hand pane in the Network window.
  5. ClickAdvanced.It's in the lower-right area of the window.
  6. Click theTCP/IPtab.This tab is near the top of the Advanced window.
  7. Look at the "IPv4 Address" value.This number is your Mac's current IP address.
  8. ClickRenew DHCP Lease.It's to the right of the IP address area. Doing so will refresh your device's current IP address.
  9. Look at your new IP address.It will be to the right of the "IPv4" value. If the number here is different than it was before releasing and renewing your IP address, your device's local IP address has successfully been changed.
    • This process will only work if your computer is on an Ethernet connection with other devices. Trying to change your public IP address with this method won't work.

    These are either programmed manually (rarely) or automatically assigned by the DHCP interface in a cablemodem or router, devices which are in turned assigned an IP address by the ISP. If these aren't available or the computer isn't on a network, it will generate its own IP address.
    Thanks!
