How do I change my IP?


The easiest method is to power off your internet modem overnight. Depending on your ISP lease time, you will be assigned a new IP.
If your ISP has set a long IP lease time, this method will not work. The IP is bound to the MAC address of your router.
Generally, changing the MAC address means a new IP. So if your router has the option of MAC cloning, this could be a solution.

If your computer is assigned the external IP directly, you can follow the steps below.
