[ Edited ]

Recently ive been getting hit offline by a guy from a game and he constantly does it and its beginning to bother me. Ive heard if i buy a specific router my ip will be dynamic of some sort i was wondering if this was true and if so which router would be best?

Re: getting hit offline

Getting any seperate router and putting your HUB in modem mode will change your external IP.

As to which one, as much ASUS as your budget allows.

Re: getting hit offline

all IP are dynamic but are assigned based on the mac address of the device connecting. So getting a new router would change it but then it would keep getting the same ip

Re: getting hit offline

Thank you. A friend told me that he had the same problem and he found out that if he changed specific settings on modem mode that will force ip change when i want.
