IP changing. Need help asap!
Ok guys i have verizon fios. As of yet i am not able to change my ip as frequently as i want to. I am only able to do it every 2 hours. And within the 2 hours i do not have internet so that is a pain. I used to have comcast and i was able to change my ip as frequently as i needed. All i did was a quick couple commands in cmd and a quick rs and bam! that was it. I have not used comcast in about 4 years now. I need to know what internet provider i am able to do that with as of right now and if anyone is able to do that with comcast still. Help is much! appreciated. I need to find this out asap!
Why the need to change your public IP so often, are you getting banned all the time, or trying to stuff some Internet voting box? LOL
There's nothing you can do to control the public IP returned by your ISP. They determine the policy of their DHCP server. If their DHCP server says your lease is good for 2 hours, you're stuck w/ it for 2 hours.
The only thing that *might* work is perhaps changing the WAN port’s MAC address each time (most have a cloning feature). Their DHCP server *might* return a different public IP thinking it’s a different user. Then again, sometimes the ISP binds your MAC address to your modem for some given period of time, so you may not get a connection at all! But it might be worth a try.
This is way more important than getting back on some site or place that ive been banned from. Lets just say im running a business and i need to change ip's constantly. How would i change the WAN ports MAC address? im clueless when it comes to this stuff. By the way which internet provider do you use?
Plenty of examples on the 'net for the most common brands. Here's a Linksys (may vary slightly from model to model, but basically the same idea).
You're just changing the MAC address associated w/ your device so the ISP thinks it's a different device, and *hopefully* assigns a different IP.
Most people use this feature when they’ve been using a PC connected directly to the modem and then introduce a new PC or a router. Since the MAC address of the new device is different, the ISP may reject the connection. But by cloning the MAC address of the previous working device over the actual MAC address of the new device, the ISP erroneously believes it’s still the old device!
For your purposes, as long as it’s a valid MAC address, you can put into that field pretty much any MAC address you like.
No, I don't know of any ISP who specifically offers this feature (most ppl are looking for the exact opposite, a means to ensure it does NOT change).
Is this change in IP needed for outbound purposes, or inbound purposes? For outbound purposes, you could use a VPN/proxy, that will certainly change the public IP that your destination sees, even though it doesn't change your own public IP. I can imagine some VPN services might use a vast pool of IPs and so it might change often just as a matter of course.

I use Intercable and a VPN to a friends business in Kansas City, USA, to appear as a U.S. internet user. I don't think you'll want to use this system. It has a maximum speed of 4Mb/sec (on a good day).
The only "business" I can think of that would make you duck and run for cover several times an hour would be a mass distribution of spam and you hope to get lost in the shuffle of IP changes and tracking logs, or maybe an email scam of another type. Perhaps an illegal porn-on-demand, home-hosted site to private clientele?
I think Grumpy has your number. You haven't come back with a good answer for him yet.
You are a true amateur as there are ways to get a new IP number every minute if so desired, no logs, and no back-tracing but I'm not teaching school here anymore, Grumpy just doesn't pay me enough these days.
