    Comcast is retarded


    so for the last month i been stuck on the same ip, witch is no big deal except for the fact that this IP is blocked by half the Internet.

    I am unable to access 50% of the web

    I am unable to access 90% of my affiliate programs/networks

    Can't log into my bank or my payoneer accounts

    And the list goes on and on

    when i contact comcast i get what i should have expected a bunch of dee dee's

    saying that i have to contact the sites individually about the issue and they have no way to force my modem to pick up a new ip so i'm just stuck not being able to do half of what i do on the net with out having to use a proxy (happens to be a pain in the ass)

    they swear its not the ip yet in the next room over i am able to connect to all the sites (which is on a separate modem/connection from comcast)

    any idea's on what i can do, i know if i disconnect the modem for 48 or so i have a pretty good chance of getting a new ip but i don't think i ever been with out a connection for that long.


    or maybe the real question is what should i do for the next 48 hours lol :eek:

    Have you demanded to talk to a manager? Their bottom-rung service reps are useless, but if you get loud enough and don't back down, they'll do it for you. I've never had this kind of problem with Comcast, but I've had my fair share of issues and as soon as I got to a manager, my problems got fixed.

    you can change comcast ips

    go to you tube and search video on using a linksys router to change your ip

    i rotate about 100 ips a day takes less then 1 min

    all you need is a linksys router for about 50 bucks

    When you have to use a program called "Hide my mac address" or something similar to change or spoof your mac address. The after your mac address is changed then you disconnect your modem and connect again. This is the way I do it, sorry I was vague before in my explanation.

    i change my comcast ip every day...its simple...

    get a linksys router
    go download macshift
    use macshift to fake spoof a mac adress
    go to your linksys router admin control and hit "clone mac adress."
    unglug router
    unplug modem
    plug router back in
    plug modem back in
    wait for both to reset and you have a new ip... has worked for me every time

    Every proxy ever works with my comcast connection. Even if I was blocked from 100% of the internet with my regular IP, I wouldn't trade that.

    I have Comcast too, and I had the same issues today. I have been with this IP for about a month, but suddenly today I couldn't even access this forum (and a couple other sites) without a proxy.

    So, I changed my laptop's MAC with MadMACS and cloned it onto my router, reboot, new IP, and it fixed the problem instantly.

    I change my Comcast IP whenever needed via spoofing a MAC and cloning it to my router. It's not good for privacy concerns, but it is useful for more practical purposes.

    So, in the end, I'm not really sure why I had limited web access earlier today...but it's all better now. :)
