Trace IP

Change IP-address

If your ISP has given you a dynamic IP-address (which is very common) you should be able to change it. Please try the following if you are using Windows.

If you do not use a router between your computer and your modem:

You may go directly to step 4 if you have any problem with the first steps.
1. Click the Start menu and choose Run.
2. Type cmd and then press enter.
3. Type ipconfig /release and then press enter.
4. Turn off your modem (press the power button or just unplug the power cord).
5. Wait 10-60 minutes (varies for different ISP)
6. Turn on the modem again and wait 2 minutes.
7. Check if you have gotten a new IP-address.

If you have a router connected between your computer and your modem:

1. Log in to the administration area for the router (you may go directly to step 4 if you do not know how to do this).
2. Find a menu called DHCP or Tools.
3. Choose Release IP.
4. Turn off your modem and your router (press the power buttons or just unplug the power cords)
5. Wait 10-60 minutes (varies for different ISP)
6. Turn on the modem and router again and wait 2 minutes.
7. Check if you have gotten a new IP-address.

You can also use a proxy in order to hide your IP-address. A proxy server is a server that handles the communication with the Internet for you. Your computer is only talking with the proxy server instead of the entire Internet. A proxy server can be used to by-pass restrictions or blockings. But they are also used by spammers and other criminals in order to hide their true identity.
