    Hi,

    I live in California and subscribing TimeWerner Cable for my internet access.
    And wondering how I can change the IP address permanently.
    I got banned from few sites and cannot access with my current IP.

    I don't know about your specific provider but cable providers often give static ip addresses.
    That means you can not switch the IP.

    You can find out by doing the same stuff as for DSL.
    Try restarting the modem (keep it off for a minute at least) requesting a new IP (through ipconfig) or change your mac/use another network interface.

    If all of that does not change your IP then you've a static IP and can not change it.

    Look into changing your MAC - its pretty easy if you have a router.

    If you have a dynamic IP you can probably change it by resetting your modem and network connection settings, but if its statis you cant change it... :/

    It could be Static IP.... because time to time, I unhook the wall outlet to reconnect the internet access and when I checked the IP address, it stays the same.
    Is it possible that I may call the cable company and ask to change the IP address?

    What make of cable modem are you using? you can flash most of them with
    haxorware or infinate software to unlock them you can then reprogram them
    to any mack you want but you need to use one in the same range as your
    cable provider for your local area. If you do a search there are plenty of cable
    modem modding boards online where you can learn how to do it. I make a good
    sideline modding cable modems in the Uk so people no longer get network charges.
    I even had a reply to one of my gumtree posts from a very high ranking member
    of this board.
    PM me I'll host the pdf instructions and software for you but you'll have to get
    your own MAX232 cable to do the configuring with.

    Same thing for Comcast. They issue IPs on leases per MAC address. I can restart modem 100 times and still have same IP. But change my MAC address and reboot, boom new IP.

    look up macshift, its a little dos app. then create a batch file to call the macshift like so:
    Code:
    macshift -r -i "Local Area Connection"
    Then just run the batch file and it will change your mac for you. Rename "Local Area Connection" with whatever yours is called.. But it should be around quotes.

    Then just reboot modem and you will have a new IP.

    You could also do this manually, or if you have a router that has the MAC Address Clone feature. Change the router's MAC and reboot modem. You will get a new IP.

    That is why I said he should just use another network interface, many computers have two these days.
    For a simple test that will change your MAC for sure as every NIC has a unique MAC.

    If that works you can lookup how to change the MAC for your NIC.

    Ok i've uploaded a cable modem guide for you here it's for the Uk but there is
    a section on US modems, I'm off to bed now but i'll put other stuff up tomorrow
    I have all the software to go with it but it's not to hard to find if you look hard
    enough.
    Code:
    http://rapidshare.com/files/269295090/Haynes_Cable_Modem_Guide_Rev1.7.2.pdf
    Using these methods takes you right off the network. So you don't exist.
