Simple Trick To Change Your PC’s IP Address

There are several reasons why people need to change their computer’s IP address. One of the main reasons is IP download limit imposed by various file sharing sites like Megaupload, Rapidshare etc. By doing so, these file sharing sites make sure that limited download slots are allotted to free users.

These websites keep a track of your IP address and permit the next file download from a particular IP address only after a certain time period. However, it is possible that you bypass this restriction by simply changing your computer’s IP address. Normally, you try to change your PC’s IP address by turning off your internet modem and turning it on again, but this trick is not successful all the time.

Nevertheless, you can change your PC’s IP address without restarting your internet modem. You do not need to make use of proxy websites, IP hide tools or proxy IP anymore. You need to simply use the below mentioned trick to change your PC’s IP address in less than a minute.

  1. You need to copy the below mentioned commands and paste them into a Notepad.
  2. Echo ipconfig/flushdns


    echo ipconfig/release


    echo ipconfig/renew



    Then, save this file by the name “ipchange.bat”.

  3. Double-click on the file to execute the commands. If you are a Windows Vista user, you should not double-click on the file “ipchange.bat“. Instead, you need to right-click on it and select the option “Run as Administrator”. 
  4. Once the above mentioned commands are executed, they will automatically reset your internet modem and a fresh IP address will be assigned to your PC.

 You can use the above trick only if your ISP (Internet Service Provider) provides a dynamic IP, wherein the PC gets a fresh IP address every time you reset or restart your internet modem.
