Although it is not always this "cut and dry". If you are using a router you may need to make changes to your router settings before obtaining the new automatic IP change. Otherwise it will automatically reset to the same IP address.

This will only work if both your computer, and the network it is directly connected to, use Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). If you are using a router, and DHCP is enabled, the steps above will only affect the IP address your computer is using on the Local Area Network (LAN) between your computer and the first router "en route" to the Internet. To change the public IP you are using to connect to your service provider, you must instead change the IP address used by last IP address using (OSI Layer 3) device seperating the Internet from your computer.

Manually assigning your IP address is also possible, but you run a very high risk of your ISP (Internet Service Provider) banning you from connecting to the internet. To manually change your IP, follow the steps above for your Operating System. In step 9 or 10, depending on your O/S, enter an IP similar to the one displayed in the command prompt window. For example, if

the IP displayed in the command prompt window is 75.1.2.3, change yours to 75.1.2.4. You’ll also need to manually enter the Subnet, Gateway and DNS Server IP addresses as well. If the new IP you give your computer doesn’t work, chances are someone else on the ISP network has already been assigned that IP. You’ll need to move on to the next one and keep trying until you find an open one. However, some ISPs match up your MAC or modem data to the IP that’s been assigned. If those 2 things don’t match up, you won’t be able to connect no matter what. If your router gets the IP and not your computer, you’ll need to http in to your routers interface and manually assign the IP there. It’s pretty much the same method as assigning the IP to your computer. The method that varies is how you reach your router's interface. You can get those instructions from your manufacturer’s website.
