Thanks to all the contributors to this thread, I was able to put together a pretty comprehensive article on https://www.whatismyip.com/how-to-change-your-ip-address/.....and clean up a lot of older comments here.
If you still have questions after you've read the article, please post them in this thread.
Hi,i greatly appreciate your services thank u very much.
I was trying to change my IP address but i received a
notice saying 'the operation failed as no adapter is in the state permissible for this operation'. What does it mean?
Hi secrecy (unusual name, must be with the CIA or MI5, or even ddddd Microsoxx)
I've no idea what it means, I've never seen this message. However I google'd it, and found this:
Can you give us a little more context? Where did you see this message? In your browser? And a little more information - platform, type of connection and so on.
However it appears that there are quite a number of references to this in Google and I recommend you try to hunt down the solution and let us know the result. If you're unable to determine what's wrong, com'on back and we'll see what we can do. And of course, another reader might know about this and give you an answer.
read your post on changing ip address.

even though i am using dial up ie the ip is assigned to my computer.
