    I have a new windows user. With that user, I changed the mac address which successfully changed the ip address. The problem is: when I log out and go back to my normal user, that user's mac address and IP have been changed as well, to the same ones as the other account. Any idea how to keep the two separated?
    Thanks!

    How you changed MAC address? I don't think you can change MAC address without a software. If you are trying to change IP's better go for VPN or but private proxys. When your internet using static IP then you can't change that by altering MAC address.

    BTW this is internet marketing forum and you won't get good response for your technical related question. Look for technical forums which may solve your problem.

    Thanks Scorpion.
    It's a dynamic ip. I was able to change the mac in the router settings. I was hoping the mac settings would stay with that particular user, but it seems to apply to all users.
    I'll check out vpn and make sure to check out the tech forums for future tech issue questions. Hopefully, they won't be stupid ones lol

    well you did logged in from different user but at the same time the common thing between both users is the router and you didn't change the router if you change router setting it would show the same changed setting to all users and all connected pc's only thing is if you connect with different machines pc's phone's laptop you would get a different ip's assigned to there machines but the routers mac id would remain the same.

    Hi,

    im an IT engineer so i have alot of experience changing ip addresses

    im not sure what version of windows your using so ill assume its XP and give you some advice

    firstly you need to check your current IP address

    go to start - RUN - and in the box type in: CMD - press enter

    a black window will appear

    type in: IPCONFIG

    this will give you your current IP settings

    example ip address: 192.168.1.75

    next press start - control panel - network configuration

    it will open another window and you will see your network adapters

    right click on your LOCAL AREA CONNECTION and press properties

    a window will open, click / highlight: Internet protocol version 4 (IPV4) then press the properties button

    you will see another window open and the fields will be greyed out

    you want to select: Use the following IP Adress

    you will see the options become available

    now in the first field it says IP ADDRESS, im guessing you are on a home network

    so you will need to make up the last 3 digits of your IP ADDRESS

    we will use my example above: 192.168.1.75 and all we are going to do is change the 75 to another number

    it can be anything above 1 but below 255

    some devices may already be using IP ADDRESSes on your network so we will choose a higher number e.g 192.168.1.99

    type your made up ip address into the field

    go back to the CMD window and type in IPCONFIG /ALL

    this will show you the current config for your whole computer

    you want to look for this:

    Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : home
    Description . . . . . . . . . . . :
    Physical Address. . . . . . . . . :
    DHCP Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
    Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes
    IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . :
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . :
    Lease Obtained. . . . . . . . . . : 11 September 2013 10:43:00
    Lease Expires . . . . . . . . . . : 12 September 2013 10:43:01
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . :
    DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . :
    DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . :

    NetBIOS over Tcpip. . . . . . . . : Enabled

    it will give you your current subnet mask and your default gateway

    copy the addresses and type them in the IPV4 window

    example

    IP ADDRESS: 192.168.1.99
    SUBNET MASK: 255.255.255
    DEFAULT GATEWAY: 192.168.1.1

    press OK on all windows and your done!!

    if you have problems and want to change back simply go back to the IPV4 window and click the option: OBTAIN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY

    i hope this has helped you

    btw you cant change the mac address of your machine as its a unique identifier for your hardware

    however if you connected via WIFI instead of network adapter you will have a different mac address

    ;)

    Thanks Nate for the concise answer. I tried this and didn't have luck getting a connection after changing the IP. Am I correct in understanding that this method would change the IP for all windows user accounts? I guess I could just change it whenever I need to use my stealth.
    I feel like I'm close to getting it. Not sure where I went wrong, but I'll continue to tinker with the formula you gave me. I have Vista fyi, unfortunately. Thanks for the help.
    One more easy question: if I hook up a laptop to the same router would I recieve the same IP that my desktop has?

    No problem, if you can do the following for me:

    start - run - CMD and type in: IPCONFIG /ALL

    and paste me the results i can tell you exactly what to change your IP address too

    if you plug in any other device to your network you will get a new IP

    every device connected to any network gets a different IP address so the devices can communicate with each other

    just to add, YES if you change the IP address on your computer it WILL be the same for any one logging in

    the IP is specific to the device / computer

    You need to keep a log of the IP addresses you use, just changing it doesn't mean it's not re-using one you used on another account.

    Thanks for the message Nate, unfortunately I can't reply because I don't have enough posts.
    I guess I was trying to spoof the mac address on a separate windows user account so I could have to separate ip address on the same machine. Maybe over my head.
    Now I am doing it by going from modem to computer for one address. And from modem to old wired router to laptop for the other. Its kind of a pain because I can't use them simultanously (have to unplug and restart the modem a lot) and I only have too constant addresses. I have another old desktop collecting dust I could use. What is my best option to have three or more addresses that might be easier to access, or access simultaneously. Thanks!

    Hi Mate

    the best thing for you to do would be to set static IP addresses on your router for each device you want connected

    ill explain

    basically on your MAIN router you need to login to it

    you login to it by getting your default gateway IP address and typing it into a web browser (internet explorer. firefox, chrome)

    you will be prompted with a login box, if you havent set your login details for the router they can be found on a sticker / small form that comes with your router (possibly attached to it in some way) - you can also get the default logins by googling it

    once your logged in you will need to go to the advanced network settings (i believe its called that on all routers)

    after flipping through a few menus you will eventually find one that allows you to set IP addresses, it is usually presented in a graph and ask you for a MAC ADDRESS and an IP ADDRESS

    Please note: you can make up the ip addresses but NOT the mac addresses

    in this grid you will need to put in the MAC addresses for each device you want to give an IP address too (let me know if you have any questions)

    the MAC addresses can be found by typing IPCONFIG /ALL in the CMD window (start - run - type: cmd)

    the easiest way i can describe making up your own IP addresses is by taking your default gateway and changing the last digit(s) to something unique ill give examples

    e.g:

    default gateway: 192.168.1.95

    1st MADE UP IP address: 192.168.1.69
    2nd MADE UP IP address: 192.168.1.221

    you can ONLY pick a number between 1 - 255

    i would recommend picking a number between 2 - 254 just because those 2 addresses might be used by the router

    dont choose the same IP address as your router(s)

    if you find a device is connected to the network (through WIFI) and its not connecting, its probably trying to use one of the IP Addresses you created, if you get this just restart the device

    i hope that made sense, any problems just ask :)
