How can I change my IP Address

Hello guys, I need help in changing my Public IP address on my hub 3 it’s so frustrating because I’ve had the same IP address for 2 years. Virgin Media says all ips are dynamic for its residential customers but mine hasn't changed ?? In the hub 3 settings there is also no option to change ip public address idk what to do at this point. I keep getting DDOSED because I play competitive gaming. My IP is leaked but I just need to change it to fix this issue. If anyone knows how to change please help me.

Re: How can I change my IP Address

Not there isn't as its automatically controlled by the network. There are two possibilities which its been reported MIGHT change it.

1) Changing the Hub into Modem Mode & then back into router mode.

2) Leaving the hub off for over a week, perhaps while you are away on holiday.

Neither of these will guarantee a change, but some have mentioned its worked for them.

Re: How can I change my IP Address

Let's put you out of your misery. You can't change your IP in router mode for your Hub. The addresses are assigned dynamically but are very sticky so don't often change. Putting your Hub in modem mode and using your own router will change your IP. That is all you can do. VM gave you accurate information.

Edi - and please don't make duplicate posts about the same issue in different threads. I have removed your other post.
