    Hi,

    I need help with forcing my Dynamic IP to change. I have tried nearly everything. It usually changes twice or more daily, but it hasn't changed in 2 days.

    I have tried ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew through CMD but that didn't do anything. I logged into my router and tried it through there as well.

    I tried changing my MAC address that did nothing as well. I tried restarting my router, still no new IP. Restarting my router usually always gives me a new IP.

    I know my IP is a dynamic IP because it always changes twice or more daily, also I typed in ipconfig /all in CMD and it came up as DHCP enabled.

    Has anyone got any ideas that might work?

    I'm only asking as I need a new IP for my YT account. I can't use proxies because they always get my YT account banned extremely quickly.

    Any help is really appreciated, thanks!

    Thats strange, my IP is always changing on reconnect. Have you tried to contact your ISP and explaining them the issue?

    I tried a couple of times but I can't ever seem to get put through with someone. I will try contacting them through email instead.

    No chance through email, at least I never solved any problem with my ISP through email as they never answered. Better try to reach them by phone or go to their HQ. Good luck!

    Thanks but I tried that. I end up waiting for almost an hour to get through to someone. Usually they put me through to someone who can't help me and it ends up getting really annoying. I will give them another try Today.

    I remember ages ago I had the same problem and I found a program that took out my whole connection and when it came back up I would have a new IP address, but I can't remember what is was called, does anyone know of anything like this?

    Some ISPs put a lease time on their DHCP, so you will get the same IP if you connect again within X number of minutes since you disconnected. that is usually tied to your user/pass or MAC address depending on how their system is set up

    better contact and ask them if it is like that..

    Thanks that makes sense. I might try leaving my router off for longer and see if that helps. I will contact them again Today :)

    if you are able to mess with its settings, you may try changing its MAC address and connect to see if you will get new IP immediately. Be sure to write down your original MAC upfront!

    I tried spoofing the MAC address with Technitium MAC Address Changer but I am not sure if it actually did anything to the MAC address.

    I will try doing it without any software this time.

    you don't need to spoof the MAC of your own PC, but the one on your router. Most routers usually have an option in their admin settings to change the MAC. If yours have that option as well, you can just change the last number/letter, reboot it and connect...
