How to Change IP Address

How to Change IP Address in Windows 7 and Windows 8

Follow these steps to change your IP address in Windows 7 / Windows 8:
  • Find out your IP address e.g. go to My IP page, and note your IP address.
  • "Go to Start" > "All Programs" > "Accessories" and right click on "Command Prompt" and then chose "Run as Administrator"
  • Right click on "cmd.exe" and then chose "Run as Administrator"
  • Alternatively, you can simply do this:
  • "Start" > "Run" and type "cmd" (without quotes)
  • Type "ipconfig /release"
  • type "ipconfig /renew"
To change your IP address automatically in Windows 7 and in Windows 8 follow these steps:
  • Go to "Start" > "Control Panel"
  • Left click on "Network and Internet" and then select "Network and Sharing Center". On the left side choose "Change adapter settings"
  • Right click on your network card and from the drop-down choose "Properties"
  • Under the "Networking" tab chose "Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4)" or "Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)" and then click on "Properties"
  • In the next window you have option between "Obtain an IP Address Automatically" and "Use the following IP Address"
  • You need almost always to select "Obtain an IP Address Automatically" to change IP address automatically. The other option, namely, "Use the following IP Address" is used for manually configuring a proxy server.
  • Then, click on "OK". Your IP address should be changed
