Re: IP Change

Your IP will just get leaked again.

VM can't change your IP only you can by using modem mode.

Re: IP Change

Use a vpn and stop blaming VM for your security issues

Re: IP Change

Useless using a vpn when my IP is leaked all I need is a new ip because all other providers change ups basically every week and can just restart and get a new IP

Re: IP Change

That might be true of other providers, but the system VM use is very different and the assigned IP address you get is very 'sticky'. It doesn't matter how many times you call up, the customer service people can't change it and are just telling you to wait 48 hours or so to get you off the line.

The only way to can do it is to put the VM hub into modem mode and then use your own router.

Re: IP Change

IP addresses are visible to the public, so why you think changing it will help is beyond me.
if you are getting DDOS'd then you clearly have upset the wrong person. you can also report DDOS (if it actually is that) via https://www.virginmedia.com/help/denial-of-service-attacks

There's your answer.  If you want a new IP address because your behaviour has invited DOS attacks and you've made your existing IP unusable, then change ISP.
