Reset IP Address and make a new one.

Hi guys, I want to make a totally new IP Address, not the 198.162.1.1 one, like the one you get when you type in google "My IP Address"

I want to change that because having a bit of problem browsing the net. So can you guys tell me how to change my IP address and create a totally different working one. Thanks

If you want to change the WAN IP address you would need to contact your ISP for that.

Hello Risabh Ji ,

Thanks for ur Question bro, Actually you cannot chance the Internet Public Address coz thaats unique and assigned by the ISP , But still u can change ur Private IP that falls under 192.168.X.X. ...To get some sense on public and priaate IP address scheme i want you to read on this information provided in the link

Private and Public IP Addresses Explained



But still if u want to use different IPs those are not assigned by isp , u can use Proxy server address there are some working Proxies available in the internet google can help , Or u google about TOR Project

https://www.torproject.org/

PS: Chaining together multiple Proxy slows down ur internet connectivity and every proxy website will have ur Original ISP IP in their logs, and ur ISP knows what websites u go and wat u do , if the law enforcement need ur private details


Hope this helps


Thanks,
Suren

Whatever you are thinking now, whatever issues you have with browsing, you really need first to understand the IP addresses. Judging by your post you are mixing some things now, trying to approach an issue from wrong direction.

Here's a post of mine where I am trying to explain how private and public IP addresses work in layman's terms. Read it and come back with any questions you might have.
