Default Easy way to change ip address

I was having such a hard time trying to change my ip address, not technically inclined LOL!!

I have comcast DSL and use a linksys router so I called comcast and told them that my husband and son play some online game and that son got banned, but husband needs to get into his account, but can't because IP is banned due to son. They couldn't (or wouldn't) change it remotely so they told me to disconnect the router and take it to my local office and trade it in on a new one. Once I hooked up the new router I automatically had a new IP.

Easy peesy if you have internet through a cable company and are close to an office. I guess it would work with switching out the modem no matter what service you have.

The problem is the Cisco Linksys. They are manufactured to have one IP address. You cannot unplug this specific router and plug back to change IP address. The reason you have a new IP address is that you have a new router. I am assuming you still have a Linksys? You will have to keep getting a new router each time you want to change your IP address. This will not work for stealth users. We have to change IP address each time we log into an account. The Linksys will not allow that. If you have one account this will work. I would not recommend a Cisco Linksys.

It might be a hassle for you but switch to ATT DSL. They give you a different IP every time you either restart your PC or when you unplug the power on the router/modem. I change mine 5-6 times a day. No problem I changed to ATT just for this reason.

I disagree with this statement. I have never heard this about the Cisco/Linksys routers... I have regularly changed IP addresses on both an older Linksys router and a brand new Cisco/Linksys router. All you have to do is log into the router setttings, change the MAC address, and reset the modem/router. You then have a new IP. Works every time!

I was told this by the actual Linksys manufacturer. Comcast gave me the 800 number and I spoke with them personally. How can you say this is not true? I can give you the phone number and you can find out...I am on this forum not only for info, but so share my experiences!

biggun is correct - there are many threads on this forum that explain how to do this.

Sorry SweetPea, you do share a lot of good info, but I think the Linksys manufacturer just told you what he was allowed to.

Do a search on here. Many have broken it down step by step on how to do it.

When you call a manufacturer, they will pretty much tell you whatever gets you off the phone the quickest... Always take their info with a grain of salt. They also basically told you to buy more of their products as a solution...

Try a google search for "how do I change my IP address with my linksys router" You should be able to find instructions on changing your MAC address to accomplish this goal.

Good Luck!

I'm sure you are right. You have had way more experience than I have. I found the old forum and will give it a try today to see if I can change it. I will let you know if I have any problems! Thanks again!

You really cant believe much of what anyone says these days. Its always good to find out yourself.
I actually use dial-up to get a new IP everytime. Sounds crazy I know, but it works great and is actually pretty speedy.

Speedy dial up? What company do you use? That is a good idea if you have multiple stealth accounts, that is for sure. I was just restricted recently and am starting fresh, I should have had some accounts maturing! This forum is actually the only good place for advice.

I think I would be pulling my hair out if I had to use a that. I want to throw my iphone at a wall when I use it for looking up things. That is too slow for me by far.

Maybe I need a new thread...or more research definitely, but a friend just told me that I need to worry more about my MAC address on the modem. I do need a new IP on my Linksys which I am working on. How about the MAC? Should I just get a new modem and router? I have Comcast dynamic, but can't change IP address on router. I am figuring this out using an old post on the forum. I need info on MAC. Let me know of any useful posts to refer to. Thanks...

It's definitely confusing at first when you try to change your IP address through the MAC. It gets very easy after you see it done.

The instructions for the linked thread above are correct, but a bit lengthy so try to do these steps.

1. Open internet explorer and in the address bar type 192.168.1.1
2. You should be prompted for a username and password. This info can vary, but I think the username should just stay blank and the password is 'admin'
3. You should see a setup page for your router with all kinds of options.
4. Click on where it says 'Clone MAC Address'
5. On this next screen you should see a set of boxes containing 2 digits numbers and letters. This is your MAC address.
6. Change the last 2 boxes to any number/letter combo (letters have to be A through F). Then click apply or save.
7. All you have to do now is unplug the router and modem for about a minute. Plug it all back in, and you should have a new IP address.

You could probably call the router manufacturer, linksys, and ask them to walk you through changing your MAC address. Not sure if they have tech support or not...

Good luck!

It is very confusing. I can get all the addresses, names, phone numbers, bank accounts, etc...but can't even figure out a MAC address! I've kept it simple all these years running just one account at a time. I don't know how you guys run so many accounts at once=) I will give all this a try tomorrow and let you know what happens

I also forgot until a little while ago that Aspkin gave simple instructions for this on page 7 of the updated stealth guide.

Also please be aware that specific instructions for going into your router, ie... "type in 192.168.1.1" works on Linksys routers and only if it has not been manually changed by someone. Some other routers use the same IP but other use "192.168.100.1", ect and will have different default login/password.

Linksys has stayed with the 192.168.1.1 and password "admin" for as long as I can remember.
