      How do I change my IP address?

      Hi,
      I've been banned from a website I use for no particular reason and need to change my IP address to use it again. How do I do this?
      I've tried this:
      Log in to the router at 192.168.0.1, Username Admin, Password Sky, Select Router Status, then the Connection Status Tab. Select Disconnect, then use the Sky Test button, which should reconnect you with a new IP address IIRC.
      ...from this thread:Changing Sky IP address

      ...but it's not working.
      Any other suggestions?

      Thanks

      Turn your router off for a couple of minutes, it may be that they have blanket banned a block of IPs to try and stop people returning though.

      I've tried it, just keep getting the same old IP address.

      Turn off the router over night and then put it back on in the morning. What IP range are you getting each time you try to reboot the router?

      I'm getting the exact same IP address every time I reboot.

      Everytime you reboot what? What IP address are you seeing?

      I have never been with Sky but with other ISP's if you deleted the password in the router after first making a copy and let it try and connect you would get a new IP the next time you boot with the correct password put back.

      But with Sky you cant do that as you can't see or change the password unless you are using a router that is not Sky and against the T&C.

      But basicly all that is doing is forcing a reset, try leaving router off for a night and see if it changes.

      You can click the "Sky Test" button/link on the Sky router's test page which tries to connect with the startup_domain login.

      I see, so a default network loging and not a user login.

      Makes sence,
