I was wondering if anyone could help me out here. I know there is a way to get around an IP ban, but I'm not quite sure as to how. I'm playing a very poorly designed program (game) that I know for sure can be bypassed because lots of friends have done it, and I know I have before too, I just can't remember how. (I have been playing this since 1994).
This game allows player created maps, and if the owner bans you, it is based off of IP. I have tried renewing IP by power cycling my router but what's strange to me is how I'm able to access these player maps from other computers in the house, so it has to be something specific with my computer. I thought all computer under the same network came out as having the same external IP address?
Also, I've heard of MAC spoofing but I know for a fact that this game does not ban by MAC address, only IP number, because of a friend who plays at her dorm in school and mentions how their router is set up to renew IP addresses every hour so she is able to re-enter the same map that she keeps getting banned from over and over again.
Any clue as to what's going on here and/or how to bypass this?
I think how I was able to do it last time was when we had a power outage here and something in the router reset so my computer was able to obtain a new IP, but I'm not quite sure.
p.s. My uncle suggested UNC name, which I tried, but that also failed.
