Someone had asked how they can manually change their IP address. That's easy. I fyou look at the bottom of your router, it will have a MAC Address. This is the factory default identifier of the router. If you log into the router, and look around, you will likely find a place to change the default. Go ahead, make something up. Numbers and letters. Turn off your modem and router. For best practice, disconnect the cable/dsl line as well, and leave it for a few minutes to flush out the modem's memory. If you restart, you will see that you have a new address. Even better, if you change it back, your old IP address may come back. Neat, huh?
