    Hello,

    first of all,

    do you have a DSL or cable connection?
    Do you pay for a static IP address?

      Yes, the place isn't appropriate...

      but to correct the problem : try resetting your router (a little button behind the router...push and hold it til the lights flash) instead of just renewing/releasing the IP...

      good luck...

      I did a search on the forum for ip change and a couple of post came up, which were in the Internet Marketing Discussion section. I actually wasn't sure either.

    FYI - Just because you have a dynamic IP, your ISP won't automatically give you a different one. You would either need to leave the modem/router off for a few days for the lease on the IP to expire or call them and ask for a new IP..

    EDIT: When IP's are issued to network devices dynamically, they get a lease (time to expire). Once the lease is reached, you may get a new IP or the same IP. Most likely, unless the device is not connected for days, you'll continue to get the same IP.

      Thanks Kingfish. The lease says it will expire in 83 minutes, but will it renew with the same ip?

        9 times out of 10 yes, you'll get issued the same IP. It all depends what your ISP has the lease set to. Some ISP's use a sticky IP, where the lease could be 2 hours, a couple days or even a couple weeks.

        It's my personal opinion that continuously trying to change the IP is going to be a waste of time as well as cause a headache.

        All devices will request a renewal when the leasing is nearing its expiration, but the renewal request will most likely result in getting the same IP address.

        EDIT: What the other member said above.

        At the end of the day, it depends on what the lease is set to, but even then you chances of getting the same IP are high.

      There's merit to kingfish says however in the past I've determined that Verizon dynamic IP's reset at a much faster rate than Cable providers.

      (A few years back, you could get a new IP in a matter of minutes). Maybe their leasing policies have changed).

      It's worth a shot to unplug it for 5-10-15 minutes.

    To change your IP address, go into your router firmware, and "release" the connection.

    (There should be a "release" "renew" button in the router configuration somewhere; check "connection status" or something equivalent).

    The Verizon Dynampic IPs usually reset within a few minutes. (At least they did a few years ago).

    Wait 5 minutes, then "renew".

    Alternatively, (and more of a sure bet), unplug your modem's power (I believe verizon has modem/router combinations now adays) for 5-10 minutes. (Make sure battery power is not enabled, make sure it's OFF).

    If that doesn't work, try 15-20 minutes.

    EDIT: I see that you tried to release renew. Try waiting for an extended interval of time before renewing.

    Just try unplugging for 15 minutes.
