Windows 7: Changing my ISP IP Address?

Changing my ISP IP Address?

Well the reason why is because i share (well used to share) internet with my neighbors ever since they got me banned on stickam (ip banned). I go to stickam to hangout and meet people on the internet for fun. And there was a feature called "Shuffle", where you randomly meet someone who is using that feature. And one day, i told my neighbor about it and he tried it out and then he did something with that feature to get my ip banned from the site. Whatever he did got my ip banned from using that feature from stickam. So i thought i ask you guys if you know how to change ip address/isp ip address. I did some google search but i don't trust them since most of them was about windows xp and that. Plus, i know people on this forums are very well smart. =D
Thanks in advance.

You can use a proxy server. This is using another computer to access the internet, essentially hideing your own credentialas with those of the proxy. Howver, be very careful using a proxy, many are unsafe.

Some internet services allow you to change your IP. It is fairly likely that you may be able to change your ip simply by pretty a button in your router configuration and/or giving your internet providor a call.

A lil trick to change your IP,

1, Turn Modem and router off overnight.
2, Turn back on and see if its changed.

Other way, Dependant on ISP.

1, Login to router.
2, Find area Called "Use router MAC address of clone"

I know I live in the UK but this works for me. Oh and dont share your internet with others, lol.
