Default How to Change IP Address?

I've had previous success with the following on windows xp but I'm on 7 now...

Command Prompt->Ipconfig/release
IPV4 settings -> Use the following IP Address -> spam random IP
IPV4 settings -> Obtain IP automatically
Command Prompt ->Ipconfig/renew

And I would have a new IP address. My connection is DHCP and I'm using an
SMCD3GN DOCSIS 3.0 Modem. My pc is connected to it directly.

THE ISSUE: I can reset easily by just shutting down my modem and then restarting it but I don't want to disrupt my entire network and I need to do this frequently. VPN's for some reason do not work in this case as these VPN's are shared with other users and I need a IP specific to me.

What do I do?

Have you checked to see if your router is caching your IP Address? If that isn't being cached and you appear to be receiving the same ip try netsh interface ip set address "Local Area Connection" dhcp in cmd followed by ipconfig /renew or you can set it manually with netsh interface ip set address "Local Area Connection" static 192.168.0.10. Again this will only set the ip address of the local computer, I don't think there is a command to change the wan ip of the router

Default Re: How to Change IP Address?

if im not mistaken i believe you want to have the same wan ip every time?

if that's the case you would have to have a static ip address option from your isp. i believe you would have to buy that as additional feature in your internet service.
