Hi stewofweed, and welcome to TSG.

Are you talking about your public IP address? If so, are you using some type of High Speed Cable or DSL service for your connection?

Or, are you talking about the private IP address of your computer on some type of LAN?

EDIT: In the first case and you have an account with a dynamic IP address, changing the public IP address might require turning the modem off for a while and then back on. Depending on the service provider, the modem may need to remain off anywhere from a few minutes to a few days to get a new address assigned when turned back on. It all depends on how the provider's network hardware gives out IP addresses.

Are you trying to change the private IP address of the computer used to connect to the router or the public IP address of the modem/router?
