Re: request for changing IP address

you can't change your ip address.its assigned by the DHCP server based on MAC address.

You can get your own router and used the hub in modem mode that will give you a new ip address.

people knowing your IP address is not the reason your having problems. Your IP address is showed to every server/service you connect to.

Re: request for changing IP address

you can buy your own router and use the hub in modem mode.

Vm CAN'T change your IP address. and they won't change the hub that is working. If they did you'd get everyone wanting one because they have been banned from sites or games

Re: request for changing IP address

if you called a number on a popup or got a cold call it wasn't microsoft. It was a scam. What number did you call them on

 

At any point did they as for remote access to your Computer
