Easiest way to change my IP address

Cody Robertson Staff asked 3 years ago

Newbie here. According to this website my IP address is 9x.9x.1xx.1xx. I have DSL with Netgear wireless router.

I play a game with multiple Facebook accounts. Before switching accounts, I power down the router, wait a few seconds and power up router. Most of the time this automatically changes my IP address. (I take these steps so Facebook does not ban my accounts).

Question - Is there a faster / easier way of changing my IP address? Also, is there a way that does not require rebooting the router? An online gamer told me to have multiple IP using proxy servers. I have no idea about how that works.

Thanks for your help.

Your asking us to help you bypass security protocols on Facebook. That's not what we do here.

You'll need to take your question to the people that told you to use proxies.

I don't play any games through Facebook myself, but there are multiple members of my household who play games such as Farmville through Facebook. They have separate accounts and will sometimes play at the same time. I have a fixed IP address.

Doubtless there are many other families as well where multiple members of the family have Facebook accounts as well and so will be connecting to Facebook to play games from the same IP address. So, I don't believe Facebook bans accounts based solely on game play from the same IP address from those accounts. If you are using multiple accounts for other purposes, though, you may have an issue.
