    I'm newly trying out AT&T DSL and there has only been 1 IP for the last week. I have unplugged the modem and press reset on the (router?) box etc. still the same IP. How do I get a new IP each time I log on?

    Assuming you have a dynamic IP, it does not mean that you will automatically release and renew an ip address just be unplugging your modem. Depending on how AT&T is set up you would have to leave it unplugged for days to renew

    Change your mac address.. I read a small tutorial for this program on a proxy site.. It works. All I do is change the last 4 digits of the mac # to anything.. Then click "change MAC id" and restart my pc.. Might take a while for your connection to get back up if you have a firewall, also it has to detect your dynamic gateway for most computers..

    I don't have a router, just a modem.. So this trick may not work for you.. Worth a shot though.

    Heres a link to it.. Someone may be able to help find a quicker method, but this worked for me.

    I use ATT DSL and every time I turn off my router for 30 or so seconds and then turn it back on, I have a new IP address. How long are you waiting before you turn your router back on?

    It depends on if you have a static (fixed) or dynamic (varying) IP address setup. Did you request a fixed IP during sign-up? If you aren't sure, just call them up and ask.

    With most DSL accounts, the IP is dynamic, which will give you a new IP every time you disconnect/reboot the modem.

    Well they are calling the dsl box I have a 'dsl gateway', so I guess it's neither a router nor a modem. I did not ask for a static IP at signup. According to whatismyip.com my IP is still the same despite disconnecting, resetting the box etc.
    I have not tried unplugging the box for 2 days to see if that would change the IP; that's too much time to be offline.

    I had at&t up until a few months ago and I noticed they change the static ip at the beginning of every month. As far as changing it before then I never really tried so can't help you there.

    It's a modem, just given a 'fancy' name.

    To get in to the modem or router use the IP# 192.168.0.1 and log in to it. The log in should the same as your log in info for the net, for a straight modem, and for a router you should know it, or, if you haven't set it, probably admin/admin. Should be able to try for a different IP using DHCP Release or DHCP Renew. If you have a dynamic IP#.

    If you are using the new AT&T UVerse service, recycling your gateway will take out your TV, VOIP phone, etc. for several minutes. In addition, the pool of IPs is such that if you do reconnect, you are likely to get the same IP.

    You should be able to recycle your IP on your regular AT&T DSL just by recycling your modem (gateway, etc).

    I just got AT&T UVerse, and while it is very cool, I've screwed the pooch WRT my CL marketing. I've started using ProxyFirewall (thanks ApeKillApe for pointing me to it), but so far the proxies that I have had are not working well. PM me if you know if a good proxy server provider that is compatible with Craigslist.

    In addition to cable internet I have ATT DSL because I love how easy it is to change ip address in seconds. No changing MAC codes like for cable or waiting 24 hours. I also get a fresh new ip address each time.

    I don't have a modem or "box" from ATT as where I live we are directly connected, but I used to have a modem gateway box when I had 3 ATT DSL lines. It works the same pretty much.

    Login to your router, and do the Release and then Renew. Works every time.

    When I had a "gateway" from them I just powered if off/on quickly (I didn't wait) and it gave me a new ip address.

    If you have a linksys router you can change your MAC code by one digit and it will change your ip address (works like a charm for cable internet).

    If none of these work then they are right you might have been setup on static ip address (though this normally costs extra) OR there is a very very limited pool of ip addresses in your area. I would call them and ask at that point.

    .
    Search for your model number "how to change IP" and you should find help.

    Basically you login as someone else pointed out should be like 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1
    and release and renew the lease and pow ..... new ip ..... YMMV .....
