There are multiple reasons you might want to change your IP address and multiple types of IP addresses you’re able to change. It’s important to realize which kind you’re interested in changing before continuing.
Every device connected to the internet has an IP address, as does your router. However, a router has not only it’s own IP address that the connected devices use to communicate with it but also another one that it uses to interface with the internet.
1. Click on “Start” in the bottom left hand corner of screen
2. Click on “Run”

6. Right-click on “Network Places” or “My Network Places” on your desktop.

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).
12. Press “Tab” and it should automatically fill in the “Subnet Mask” section with default numbers.

With a little practice, you can easily get this process down to 15 seconds.
This only changes your dynamic IP address, not your ISP/IP address. If you plan on hacking a website with this trick be extremely careful because if they try a little, they can trace it back
