Tips And Tricks How To Change IP Addres……enjoy
The following is a guide on how to change your IP in 30 seconds or less. This can be used if your IP has been banned from a game server, or on gunbound if your IP get’s blocked. I’ve tried this on both Windows XP and Windows 2000, and it has worked!
1. Click on “Start” in the bottom left hand corner of screen
2. Click on “Run”
3. Type in “command” and hit okay
You should now be at an MSDOS prompt screen.
4. Type “ipconfig /release” just like that, and hit “enter”
5. Type “exit” and leave the prompt
6. Right-click on “Network Places” or “My Network Places” on your desktop.
7. Click on “properties”
* You should now be on a screen with something titled “Local Area Connection”, or something close to that, and, if you have a network hooked up, all of your other networks. *
8. Right click on “Local Area Connection” and click “properties”
9. Double-click on the “Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)” from the list under the “General” tab
10. Click on “Use the following IP address” under the “General” tab
11. Create an IP address (It doesn’t matter what it is. I just type 1 and 2 until i fill the area up. I use my same ip address with a different number at end of ip, same sub mask, same default gateway.)
12. Press “Tab” and it should automatically fill in the “Subnet Mask” section with default numbers.
13. Hit the “okay” button here
14. Hit the “okay” button again
*You should now be back to the “Local Area Connection” screen.*
15. Right-click back on “Local Area Connection” and go to properties again.
16. Go back to the “TCP/IP” settings
17. This time, select “Obtain an IP address automatically”
18. Hit “okay”
19. Hit “okay” again
20. You now have a new IP address
Get rid of Windows Update restart nag
A simple tip for removing the annoying Windows Update nag that pops up asking you over and over again whether you’d like to restart your computer now or later.
To stop this service, open [Command Prompt] (Start>Run>cmd>Enter) and type the following command sc stop wuauserv. This will not prevent Automatic Updates from starting at the next boot. So don’t worry, you’ll keep getting Windows updates. Just don’t forget to restart eventually.
If you’re afraid of the command line? Here’s how you can disable Automatic Update restart prompts using Windows Computer Policy
Now, to get rid of it: Start / Run / gpedit.msc / Local Computer Policy / Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / Windows Components / Windows Update / Re-prompt for restart with scheduled installations
Seems simple enough. Obviously you should still get to restarting your computer eventually, but really, Windows – how many times in an hour do we need to be reminded that you’re desperate for our restarting attention? Just let us work.
