How can I change the IP address of my Super Hub?
Not sure if I need to be concerned - but I think the IP address has been acquired by a person who used their laptop on my home broadband.
Now I'm wondering if the IP address could potentially be used somehow for gathering personal information when I use the internet?

Thanks for the advice - the original question was about changing the public IP address.
I tried switching the superhub into modem mode, and the IP address changed.
But when I reverted back to superhub mode, it reverted back to the original IP address. Any idea how to make the change permanent?

leaving the superhub for a few days, can sometimes give you a new external/public IP address. but it depends on the CMTS for hub connectivity. only real option to get a different Ip address is to use modem mode, and have your own router attached the superhub.

You mention the 'Public' IP address.
Does this mean it is used but more than one user in an area? And is there a Private IP for each user and does this change?

You will have 2 different types of IP address. The WAN ip (wide area network) is provided by the CMTS to equipment that requests this via a gateway. The gateway will be either a stand alone cable modem or the modem part of the Superhub.
The LAN ip (local area network) is assigned internally by the wireless router to whatever devices are connected.
With our equipment, these are identified by a 192.168.0.* address.
This internal ip addressing is used to route data to specific devices (laptops, pc's, android phones etc.)
Hope this helps.
