Hi,I was told that I need to change my IP address. Unplug overnight has been tried, but didn't work. I am using Windows 7 and D-link router, DIR-655, http://www.dlink.ca/products/?pid=DIR-655

Did you follow the instructions on this page?

If so and your IP didn't change, then you may not be able to change it.

IP assignment and control is completely up to your ISP and each ISP is different.

That's what I do, but I have cable so it's dynamic and not static, dsl's MAY have static Ip's that never change and the isp MAY charge a fee to change it.
