Is the LAN or WAN IP address trying to be changed.Eriksrocks said:Hmm....
It is good to change your IP once in a while though, for security reasons.
Well I don't think you can manually set it, but you can renew it and get a new one (from your ISP). I do this by just going to my router setup page.bearone2 said:so i can change it to what ever i want, please tell me how.
silly me, i thought it was tied into my isp.
I don't have specific concerns or problems, I was just noting that since every website you visit could log your IP, it's a good idea to change it once in a while.Bob Cerelli said:Is the LAN or WAN IP address trying to be changed.
There's not too much you can do about the WAN address other than perhaps turning off your DSL/Cable modem for a period of time (assuming you don't have a static IP address assigned for something like your DSL modem).
If you have security problems with your LAN, you need to investigate that further with local people.
If you have other specific security concerns, you should get those addressed as well.
