IP change windows vista home premium.

HSBxJohn asked 2 years ago

I want to change my IP address, I follow directions on all those youtube video's about going to network management and properties, On the part where I enter the IP I want, I do my IP but change the last digit, The Subnet mask is supposed to enter itself, It does but its different from what I see when I type in ipconfig in control prompt. When I'm all done and search IP config in control prompt the IP is changed but my internet goes down and doesn't come back up. Can you please help me solve the problem and change my IP address.

If your subnet isn't correct, your internet won't work.

But, you could've also grabbed an IP that is already in use by your ISP therefore causing an IP conflict on their network.

Make sure it's working with the IP your already assigned, then go for changing it to another.
