How to change my IP?

Hello,

I'm online entertainer which I'm vulnerable to attacks. Someone has my IP address and is constantly hitting my internet off. How do I go about changing my IP address to prevent this attack from happening? I'm tried phoning 150 but nobody is answer saying the team is busy.

 

I have no internet whilst this person is attacking my IP.

Only way is to put the Hub into modem only mode that gives an i.p. change. Obviously you will have to use your own wireless router as well if you want that connectivity

Re: How to change my IP?

Thanks for the response. So there is no way to permanently prevent this guy from attacking me without changing to modem mode?

I don't know... but VM wont help you do it - others on this forum will know what you can do (if anything) and hopefully will comment soon.

When the hub is in modem mode the IP address for it is 192.168.100.1

You should be able to log into it at that address and change to router mode.

Re: How to change my IP?

There are various websites showing the steps to take in tackling a DOS/DDOS attack, if that's what this is.

Are hosting a webserver on your own (VM) IP address ?
