I am on Windows Vista 64 and have a D-Link DI-604 Router (not wireless) that is used by three computers at home to access the internet.
I am a Time Warner Cable subscriber and use their broadband high speed internet service.
I am trying to change my IP Address (gaming purposes) and have not had much luck doing so.
These are the initiatives I have tried thus far:
1) Using the CMD prompt, I have done ipconfig / release + ipconfig / renew while connected to the router
2) Using the CMD prompt, I have done ipconfig / release + ipconfig / renew while connected directly to the modem
3) Powering off both the modem and the router for more than 8 hours, I had hoped that without actually using the reset buttons and changing any settings that were important that a clean start might have been possible
4) Logging into the router as an Admin, I have tried using the clone MAC Address feature
The bottom line is, every time I visit www.whatismyip.com, after having tried each step, cleared my browser for temporary files and cookies, it always shows me with the same IP Address.
I am not the most technical of people, but I am able to follow directions.
If anyone might have a solution to this problem, please provide step-by-step instructions so that I might try them.
Thank you for your time.
