CHANGING MY IP ADDRESS

I have a Xfi gateway and it runs like a beast. I have no issues with my connections until i enter into the xbox live gaming world. SOMETIMES i have hacker that attack me and i lose connections for hours. Most the time i just change my router and i have a new IP address to play fopr a while before i run into another hacker. BUT i like this Xfi gateway and it works really well.

  • I want to know how can i change my IP address when i am targeted by attacks?
  • step by step what do i have to do?
  • i tried the ipconfig/renew (but the i kept the same IP address)
  • i tried a master reset (but the i kept the same IP address)

i want a solid method that will work. I do not want to always change gateways. i rather just unplug it or type in commands to change my IP address.

 

Please advise.

Re: CHANGING MY IP ADDRESS

You can't if you use their rented gateways. If you get your own retaill purchased modem and your own third party router you can change/ clone the MAC address at will which will result in a different public / WAN IP address.

Re: CHANGING MY IP ADDRESS

so if i buy a gateway i can change the IP address at will? how? do i just reboot the gateway? or unplug it? What do i need to look for in a new gateway to have this option?
