F***ing piece of s*** forum perm ban me how can I change ip address

This would not change the IP address assigned from your ISP.



Actually if he has a cable modem changing the MAC address would issue him a new IP.... or at least it does when I do it....

With DSL it was as easy as ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew or at least it was for me... Otherwise, turning off the cable modem and waiting a while can make the ISP issue a new IP.

The thing is, I'm sure this guy is not going to stay 'incognito' and I bet they're expecting him....he's going to go back, cuss them out and get banned a 3rd time... at this point they could go to his ISP and complain... Call him a cyberterrorist or something.

Ugh. I need to scrub my eyes and continue never caring about basketball again. What is it about sports that causes...sub-intelligent people to be ...sub-intelligent with such fervor?

Unplugging your modem would only cause your IP address to change if you have a dynamic IP. If your IP is static, you will have to contact your ISP and ask for them to change it. The only other way to change your IP address is to use a VPN or proxy. Technically this doesn't actually change your address, it just tunnels the traffic through the VPN, but it's effectively the same thing.


no. Even being dynamic, it depends on when his lease on that IP address expires. He has to unplug his modem about 1/2 through his lease and keep it unplugged until his lease tries to renew. Once that happens when he plugs in his modem it will grab a IP from the DHCP server. but it doesn't guarantee he'll get a new IP. Likely but not for sure

best to either spoof your MAC address or use a VPN

Based on everything you've said so far, it seems like you deserved the ban.

But when I want to change my IP address, I just change my router MAC address and then unplug both my router and modem for a minute or two.

Could care less = you care at least somewhat. Couldn't care less = you don't care at all.

when you change your MAC do you change it to a random MAC or a MAC that already exist on a device you already have? From what I understand MAC's are unique to devices you have and if a ISP see's you messing with it and can sometimes assume you're trying to hack something and ban you. Is this true or have I just been fed BS?

I just use a MAC address generator.

My router has an option to:

"use default MAC address"

"use computer MAC address"

"use this MAC address: __________"

I choose the third option and then use a MAC address generator. While I don't know the specifics on why it works, I just know that this was the only way I could get my IP address to change. I've done it twice and I've never been reprimanded by my ISP.

Try moving to a new residence and signing up for a new ISP.
