Expired

Changing public ip address on Virgin

1
Found 4th Sep 2017
So I've had the same IP for at least 9+ months going by account logs. I'm wanting to change it as a particular game I play has a toxic community and to avoid being tracked between my in-game accounts by more knowledgable players.

Virgin say I can try changing it by using the normal lease expiring method but that takes like a week + no guarantee of getting a different IP.

I've read about going into modem mode (which gives a new IP anyway), connecting a router and cloning the mac on the router to induce a change of the IP in the Virgin modem. (not sure how this works at all).

Has anyone done this before and know the best model router to get for this purpose as I don't really need a router otherwise.

cheers!
