I heard you can change the ip address of your pc... I want to change it cause I got banned from a site for no apparent reason... and they blocked my IP address it says... so if I change it ill remake account.

I know you know how Husse.

Hey babujbf, I know you can change the internal IP address easy enough, but if you're behind a router (or even ethernet I believe) you'd want to change your external IP address to get around the ban (since thats what they have on you anyway) and I think you'd need to contact your ISP for that.

To see if the two IP's are indeed different (internal vs external) you can compare the output of ifconfig in a terminal to what a site like: http://www.whatismyip.com/ says your external IP address is.

If you are having a static ip,you need to contact your ISP for the change.If it is a dynamic ip,you can change it by resetting the modem.You can check for the change in your ip using Ip-details.com .
