Can I call or message virgin to change my IP address.

Hello I play an online pc game and am a victim of being DDOSSED and as a result it is becoming quite frankly annoying now. If there was any method to change my IP adress I would be grateful. Or is there a way I could message Virgin or give them a call to do so. I am on the super Hub 3.0.

and what happens if they get your new IP address, they'll just do the same, best to have it reported since if it comes within the UK they the people doing the attacks are breaking a few acts, and their ISP's T&C's, so if you know the Ip address the attacks are coming from you could use e.g. http://www.ip-adress.com/ip_tracer/ to find out what ISP it comes from.

You could put your SH3 into modem mode and use your own router. That will give you a different IP address....

Can I put it into modem mode using an old sky router?

Re: Can I call or message virgin to change my IP address.

the sky router was designed for ADSL aka broadband via the telephone line, since with virignmedia you need to use a cable router.. a lot of people get a e.g. a asus rt68u series, not cheap but worth it.. normally costs around £100, if this is outside your budget, can suggest others
