      what sahll i change the ip to cause if i change to random ip i might not get any internet
      Your LAN IP is an internal one, and so changing it will not achieve what you want it to do.

      It is the IP that you connect to the Internet to, ie that needs changing, and they are dynamically served by Sky on connection.

      Re: changing ipv4

      As you have been told several times changing your LAN address will make no difference, except screw up your firewall settings.

      What you can try is going to the Router Status page and click the 'Sky Test' button at the bottom. At one time this was guaranteed to trigger an IP change, but it may not work now, especially if you are on MER. Don't worry about the message you get back, it may even say you have no internet connection.
