How to change IP on wireless network?

Anima asked 1 year ago

Hello,

I would like to change my IP address.

My computer is automatically connected to a wireless network (administration by the hotel building) and so I don't have access to the router.

==

The command ipconfig/all gives:

IP Routing Enabled: No
WINS Proxy Enabled: No
Dhcp Enabled: Yes
Autoconfiguration Enabled: Yes
IP Address: ....155
DHCP Server: ....237
Lease Obtained: 1/6/2009
Lease Expires: 1/7/2009 (1 day lease)

the IP address from whatismyip.com is: ....124

==

I have tried the following:

command prompt, ipconfig/release, ipconfig/renew protocol

changing the 'IP/TCP' in Properties for the wireless connection protocol

switch wireless off/on on the computer, disable/reenable connection, and 'repair' for the connection

connecting to another wireless network then reconnecting to the primary one

===

But the IP address is still ....124

===

How can the IP address be changed?

Is there any service that can do this?

Thanks in advance for your help!!

im betting the 155 IP is your local IP (192.168.1.155 or something like that)

the 124 IP is your external IP (which is odd because the IP you posted from does not end in 124, I guess you posted from somewhere else)

you can't change your external IP by doing the ipconfig/release or renew command, at best that will change your local IP

please read the articles linked in my signature below, that might shed some light for you

I dont think you will be able to change your external (Internet) IP without access to the router config
