Changing IP Address

kodz123 asked 3 years ago


I am having problems changing my IP address. I have Time Warner Cable with a modem but no router (ethernet cable) and no wireless internet. The modem is Arris TM602G. I have tried the steps listed on the whatismyip website as well as the /release and /renew commands and unplugging/rebooting the modem but these have all failed, giving me the same IP address. I contacted Time Warner support a couple times but they didnt really help, but I learned that I have DHCP and the lease is 12 hours if this helps. Could anyone help me change my IP?

If you can figure out how to change your MAC address, that should do it. You'll need to power cycle the modem after changing the MAC, though.
