I want to change my IP address for security reasons. I can't seem to do it with BT HUB 3.0.
Is there any way around this? Ideas much appreciated - thank you very much!
Powering down the hub for about 5 mins should allocate you with a new IP Address.
thanks for the reply.
i unplugged the hub for half an hour, but when i go to system prefs/network in my mac, the IP address it gives there is still the time. am i looking in the right place? or is that perhaps the private IP mentioned by the first reply?
sounds like your MAC ip address allocated by your router not the external IP which will change as advised
The hub will give out a private IP address in the range of 192.168.1.54 to 192.168.1.237
The public range could be about this, mine currently is 86.171.236.xxx
