Regarding MAC address.


Recommended Posts

Hi.

Just a quick question ive all ways thought about would changing the MAC address of the router change the ip address of devices connected to it.

Say if i was getting hit offline AGAIN ffs lol.

Strange question i know but would really finally like to know.#

Many thanks.

If you change the MAC address slightly it's possible it will change your public IP address yes, but this won't always be the case and it wouldn't change by a lot. If you have a dynamic public IP address you can just unplug your modem for 10 minutes, connect it back and you should have a new IP

Dynamic public ip is standard i think?

Im sure my isp does not do static or at least you need to request it.

is there a way to see your public ip?

Yeah it is pretty standard - they usually charge extra for a static IP. Literally type my ip into Google and it'll pop right up
