Windows 7: How can I change my static IP?

How can I change my static IP?

I have changed my dynamic IP simply by resetting my router, and it shows up different here: What Is My IP Address? Lookup IP, Hide IP, Change IP, Trace IP and more...

How can I change my static IP? So that websites cannot identify that it is again me who is accessing them?

Can I call my ISP?

Thanks

Do you have a static IP? If yes, may I know where did you get it from?

You can certainly ask your ISP for help. But have you tried opening your Network Connection (Ethernet or WiFi), Right Clicking on Properties and then selecting TCP//IP and again looking at its Properties and then choosing the Automatic IP and DNS Radio Buttons? If it works then you won't be saddled with static IP.

However before doing that please note all the Addresses carefully so that in the event of Network not connecting, as happens sometimes, you can again feed these addresses back to be able to connect to the Net.

You changed your dynamic IP but not your static ? you don't have both and the only one your likely to have is a dynamic. There are not enough numbers generated by IPV4 to allow static IP's, until IPV6 is universally adopted, dynamic IP's will continue to be the norm.

Chromatic? First off it doesn't matter, SITES like this one record EVERY IP address that comes thru here, basic FCC guidelines makes it so. EVEN if you try to hide/disguise your IP address business website such as this can get your root IP (example: XXX.XXX.XXX) by that if there is any problem, they can contact the company (ISP) and by your timestamp find out who you are.

Can you change your root IP?

Wouldn't MAKE a difference! Any tool you try to use to hide, or mis-direct your IP address wouldn't be of any help. The true source would be seen in the CCID.

Theres this forum that is ticking me off and they keep tracing my IP and banning me even if I change it, do I literally need to change my router or my service provision?
