And will not write at length why it's a bad idea. If you want another Internet IP you should use a VPN. What a VPN is and how it changes your IP is all over the net.
Alright, I have a pretty straightforward question that I'm hoping one of you can answer.
Although my ISP uses dynamic IP Addresses, the lease renews before it ever expires, which means my IP address never actually changes.
I want a new IP address.
From my understanding, I can change my MAC address so it looks like a new piece of hardware, and I'll be given a new IP address. This being said, I went in and spoofed my MAC address in my modem/router settings to see if it would work. I quickly realized it wouldn't because my ISP must associate that new MAC address with my account for the services to work.
My question is: can I call my ISP and tell them I got a new modem/router (even though I didn't) and give them my spoofed MAC address I made, and this work like I expect it to?
I thank you for your time, and look forward to someone shedding some light on this for me! Thank you all again!
