How To Change Your IP Address
Anyone can change their IP address faster with these instructions. You no longer have to seek out help from technical support or your nerdy friends when you are ready to change a IP on your computer or router! These instructions work on other common technologies like laptops, mobile phones, and tablets.
We’ve summarized the quickest ways to get a new IP address and that is sure to speed up the time it would have taken you by reading other instructions or articles you might have found on the Internet.
How to change your computer IP address
Changing your computer IP is as simple as turning your computer and router off for ten minutes and rebooting them both. This one move is the fastest possible way to get a new address assigned to you. If this ten minute technique does not work and you have the same IP address as before you will unfortunately have to contact your ISP and get a static assigned IP or have them flush your account. It works every time!
How to change your router IP address
Very similar to the way you change your computer’s IP, change your router or modem by unplugging it for around five to ten minutes. This allows your ISP to drop their connection to it and flush their router entries. To get a new IP and connect back to the Internet, plug your router back in and give it five minutes to connect online and be assigned a new IP. When you get the same IP back in some cases and the change didn’t work call up your ISP and see if they can reset it for you on their end.
