Default Changing IP Address

hey guys

a quick question if you could help please

when setting up new accounts (both ebay and paypal)

the bit I am concerned about is the IP address

When I change my IP address the only section that changes it the last two digits...

For example it could be

xx.xxx.xxx.23

then I do what is needed to change IP - and I also clear cookies, caches, flash cookies, etc, etc

and the new IP address then is for example

xx.xxx.xxx.14

Will this be OK - as it is a new IP address ... it;s just that the first bunch of numbers are the same...

And if this is not OK how do I go about changing the first lot of numbers as well as the last two

thanks in advance

the last 2 digits is fine,( it is preferable to have more change ) but the last 1 or 2 is all you need, for it to be a different ip address from last. Keep an eye on it though because if it is really the last 2 only that means you only will have so many combinations before you repeat yourself on ip and therefore have same one again.

thanks for confirming that

Just what I thought - evenif one number changes it is a different IP address

And yes I am keeping a record of IP numbers as and when i change them

thanks again

It occurs to me that somebody should ask if you are changing the proper IP. There is a LAN IP and a WAN IP. WAN is the one you want changing.

Regarding the IP you mention above - does it start with 192.x.x.x ?? Can you give the first set of digits (before the first '.') and briefly state the method you are using to change? Are you working with a DSL box or a Cable Modem?

^^^Why you are complicating matters? In the case of the OP, I think he is checking if the two last digit changes are acceptable for stealth
Re-read his second post....what you think?

What I think is - if OP has a question this general, it is possible OP is not changing the correct IP, but instead changing local IP of wireless adapter or network card.

This stuff is tricky at first, for people. Just asking, to be sure we're all ON THE SAME CHANNEL.

This happened a couple weeks ago in a different thread. I posted screenshots, if you recall.

When it comes down to the nitty-gritty of the IP changing, then the thread would be in the nitty-gritty IP changing sub-forum. tbf, this is/was a generalized question

Then the general answer is - if any one single digit of the IP changes, it is DIFFERENT in the eyes of ebay PP auto-bots. But they are checking WAN IP, so be sure that is what is changing.

Hi,

With regards to this WAN IP address:

I am using IPburger.com to check my IP address when I reset my router. The number displayed on the site does change when I reset the router.

Is this the WAN IP that IPburger displays?

Regards.

yes WAN ip is what youll find on ipburger and whatsmyip etc..

LAN - isnt that just your networks code, I dont know much about that but maybe Vic can elaborate, is there something we need to worry about with LAN and multiple accounts, it doesnt isolate or link our activities in any way?

LAN is the internal network. It has an IP address which is only seen within your network. That one doesn't matter at all. WAN is the external network address that the rest of the world sees when you visit other sites. WAN is the one you want changing.

If you check IP burger and then change router MAC and IP burger shows a different number - you're doing it right and all will be fine (in regards to the IP linking).

It is better if the WAN changes more significantly than just 2 digits. But any change is good for you.

that sounds good, seperate windows users for each ebay/pp account pair too. I just turn pc on off and check ip, no need for overnight necessarily, see what works for you anyway..

Use separate windows user accounts. Don't delete the cache and all that, it makes you look shifty in the eyes of the ebay bots. The easy way to switch IP is to go into your router setup, change the MAC address. Reboot the modem (not the router), and forget all the other steps you've been taking. You don't release or renew. You don't wait 20 seconds.

Nah. You'll be alright. If you hit a jam, just keep asking.

Hi! Ive just installed a router. Is there a way I can go back and forth to a specific IP? I see if I turn off automatic DHCP, router would let me force a fixed IP. But dont know the procedures 1- release 2- fix ip 3- renew?

Before I installed the router I just did this thorugh network control panel, TCP/IP config.. released, forced an ip, renewed... and most of the times I got the old IP I wanted (if it was being used, i would be assigned a new one)

Is this possible too with a router?

thanks

Ive just found my answer on this very useful post:

HOW TO: Change Cable Modem IP Addresses to CONTROLLED NUMBERS

So if you are looking to switch between controlled ip numbers on a wireless network, that solves it.
