Been banned from an irc channel? You should be able to release the ip address you already have , switch everything off, wait a while (depends on your isp, may be hours, days, weeks, months) and turn everything on. By then, you old address may have been picked up by someone else.

Some ISP's purposely "fix" your IP address too.

I would go into a dos promt..

type "ipconfig /release"

and then

"ipconfig /renew"

"ipconfig" just by itself will tell you if it changed or not before and after...

That is great if he is running NT/2K/XP. If your running 98 go to start/run and type in winipcfg.

opjose, isn't that called a "static ip"? hehehe. I have to pay $5 extra a month just so I can have a static IP. I would think that is a blessing if you get one. Kinda like having a real address on your house vs. living in an RV.

LOL!

You would think so, but for instance comcast gives you a non-static IP, via DHCP, then they "lock it" to your modem.

Weird as this defeats the whole purpose in a way...

Ya, that doesn't make much sense.. I have never seen something use DHCP and have unlimited leases on them. At the very least a power outage usually changes the IP for cable users. I support a couple that VPN into my network and I see their IP change when they have power outtages.. but normally that is what it takes. Cable users seem to get like a year lease on their IP unless the modem is turned off. If it were me, I would screw with people and make it like a 24 hour lease, then no one could even setup a ftp server that would last. I'm a sick bastard like that though.. love to screw with the end users...

That doesnt work cause then we just use a dynamic forwarding service...

Like dns2go or no-ip.org...

You get a static IP which always maps to your dynamically changing address...

The main purpose of dhcp is centralised configuration, not allowing people to just add new machines to a network easily(which can actually be a major security problem). Even if they lock the address to your modem, it's still allowing them to control it remotely.

Yes.

In this case however I've watched them fly back and forth many times from fixed IP to modem addresses via mac's at provisioning time, then variable addresses, then back again to fixed addresses via dhcp.

Really weird.

Frankly I don't care either way. It's just annoying that they don't get their own stories straight.
