Change my IP?

Hi, Is it possible to change my IP?

I found out today that my Ip has been posted to a website and ive been getting DDosed today whilst playing my game. People are booting my Router off to win the games and its very frustrating.

Hello

Due to nature of how the IP addresses are assigned I am afraid what you are asking isn't possible, you can purchase your own router and enable modem only mode on the hub that will give you a different IP address.

Re: Change my IP?

Or you might want to pay for a good VPN for a couple of months (so about £20). 

I presume the DOSsers will give up if they can see you're connecting, but they can't grab your IP?  Express VPN and Nord VPN are good places to start for gaming.  After a few months cancel the VPN, and (hopefully) the short memories of these twerps will mean that you can then game without such problems.

Re: Change my IP?

if they already have the IP (Op said its been posted on a site) then a VPN will not help

Re: Change my IP?

a VPN wont help me, they already have my IP so they will still see my real IP rather then the VPN.

Well, it's either modem mode and hope for a new IP address, or find a new ISP time!
