    I just got cable after having dsl, So this is static IP. unlike dsl where i just had to reset the router to get a new ip. anyone had success changing the ip using some MAC changer at all or something else for cable??

    I believe that the service provider's DHCP server assigns an IP based on the MAC address of the device and re-assigns the same IP until the lease expires. But then again, I could be completely misinformed and just talking out my ass.

    You might be better off using proxies.

    Are you seriously on RoadRunner? I thought they were swallowed up by the Borg/Comcast.

    Yeah just change your mac on your nic as long as its direct to the modem, no routers it should give you a new IP. I use TMAC its a free program and it makes it a lot quicker and easier, it will automatically pick a mac to spoof for you. Google TMAC if interested.

    If you change your MAC address, and then reboot your modem they will issue you a new IP address. This works for me each and every time.

    I have rr and changing my mac address does not change the IP. i believe you have to let the modem sit unplugged for some hours before it resets, or you can call up time warner and say you want a new IP

    I had the same static IP for 2 years, and I had like 3 computers all setup to various componets.

    One day my ISP changed the IP on me and all of the sudden nothing worked. By this I mean the VPS's I was running, etc, etc.

    It's a bitch to change it all. I'm glad my IP doesn't change that often, haha.

    What the member is trying to say is
    They are not "static" ( indicates same IP assigned to user for duration of contract )
    They are not "dynamic" ( indicates assigned randomly to user on demand,
    generally "each session" or reboot of the modem
    {or log on, in the case of PPPoE from computer icon })

    They are "sticky" - where the lease time is between 8 hours and 1 year,
    depending on the provider.

    LIKELY, you won't get a static IP unless you pay extra for it ON REQUEST
    in a high-end business service because they are in such high demand
    and each provider only gets a certain number of them - this is what
    dynamic IP overcomes... but you can't run certain business equipment
    from a dynamic because it needs the same IP constant to work.

    and sticky IP overcomes the issue of cookies and familiar sites
    remembering passwords and history and other crap like that
    much better than a dynamic IP- basically - but in a time of
    high demand, if you are not online, they can reassign the IP
    you used yesterday to a user who needs on "now" if they
    have no more IPs available.
