Change IP Address

Some ISPs do not support this type of procedure and hence there are chances of getting back the same old IP address even after trying this hack.In this case you need to switch off the modem and then switch it on to get the new IP address.

NOTE: All these tricks works only if you have a dynamic IP address.But if you have a static IP address you have no option to change your IP.


1. Click on “Start” in the bottom left hand corner of screen.

2. Click on “Run”.

3. Type in “command” and hit ok.You should now be at an MSDOS prompt screen.

4. Type “ipconfig /release” just like that, and hit “enter”.

5. Type “exit” and leave the prompt.

6. Right-click on “Network Places” or “My Network Places” on your desktop.

7. Click on “properties”.

You should now be on a screen with something titled “Local Area Connection”, or something close to that.

8. Right click on “Local Area Connection” and click “properties”.

9. Double-click on the “Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)” from the list under the “General” tab.

10. Click on “Use the following IP address” under the “General” tab.

11. Create an IP address (It doesn’t matter what it is. I just type 1 and 2 until i fill the area up).

12. Press “Tab” and it should automatically fill in the “Subnet Mask” section with default numbers.

13. Hit the “Ok” button here.

14. Hit the “Ok” button again.You should now be back to the “Local Area Connection” screen.

15. Right-click back on “Local Area Connection” and go to properties again.

16. Go back to the “TCP/IP” settings.

17. This time, select “Obtain an IP address automatically”.

18. Hit “Ok”.

19. Hit “Ok” again.

20. You now have a new IP address.

When one uses the Internet, there are tons of little pieces of data that their computer sends out and is recorded by many different indelible sources. While much of this meticulous recording is used for good purposes such as expediting your browsing times, some of the information can be used for more malicious intent.

One aspect of browsing is cookies. Consider the cookie; it a little piece of information that is put on your computer by a website that records your preferences and other small pieces of data. These cookies generally affect you very little and simply restore personalized settings on a website you visit. Some cookies can be a bit more harmful though. These cookies can be intercepted by hackers to track your computer and possibly place viruses or other malware on it.

Another thing to consider is a cache system. Long ago, in the dark ages of dial-up and slow connections, a cache saves pieces of a website that you visited and allowed for a quicker load of the website when you next visited it. With part of the website already installed on your computer, you can actually just load it from your memory instead of having to access the Internet, inherently making it faster. This cache system could possibly save websites that you tried to get rid of though, and if someone were to hack into your system they could view these previously thought-to-be deleted sites. Although the cache system is outdated due to the incredible speed of Internet travel today, it is still installed on every computer, simply to create a privacy issue.

Your ISP logs every thing you do also. They have records of every site you visit, and those cannot be deleted by a simple “delete browsing history” function. Although it is probably in the fine print of your contract with them that says they can record anything you do no matter what, it still isn’t right. Who is to say that someone couldn’t hack into this seemingly secure data base and gain access to this information within? This would be a hacker’s dream; a goldmine filled with passwords, bank account information, and the browsing information easily used for blackmail.

Every thing you do on the Internet is tied to your IP address also. Every e-mail, instant message, and other messages you communicate are linked to your IP address which is like a virtual nametag; shows your location, browsing history, and is an open portal to all of the sensitive information located on your hard drive.

Why is it public then? This is a question privacy advocates pose to the Internet companies and online manufacturers. The IP is a sensitive piece of information and the fact that anyone can view it is a bit disturbing. Fortunately, there is a way to change that in the form of an IP changer. This will change your IP address and allow you to keep yourself safe and anonymous online.
