For what reason internet provider changes your IP address?
Why would someone want to change his IP address, expect that he just wants remove IP ban?
What are the specific cases or under what circumstances provider changes your IP address?
I would like to know what would it solve.
The IP is changing because of the lease time set up in the Netgear router in the DHCP settings. IP adresses in a DCHP network are dynamic. The IP adress may change every time you connect and disconnect to the network. Changing IP can keep our data safe from hackers.
You guys are missing the most important reason why your ISP changes the IP address (besides that utilizing DHCP maintains a robust network), they can charge you am extra 30 bucks a month for a static ip address (so you can be your own host).
IP address stands for internet protocol address. It’s a unique number assigned to each device that accesses the internet. It’s how different connected devices identify each other.
IP addresses are a string of numbers separated by periods. They look something like: 111.222.333.444.
Reasons to Change an IP Address Online
You know what IP addresses are now, you may wonder why anyone would want to bother changing theirs. There are a few reasons people decide to change an IP address.
1. You can’t connect to a network because another device with your IP address is already on it.
If you try to connect a product to your network that has the same IP address as something already connected, your network won’t recognize it. As far as your router can tell, the IP address trying to connect is already on the network, so it won’t realize a second product is attempting to communicate with it. If your router auto-generates private IP addresses for your devices, this is unlikely to come up. But if it does, changing the IP address for either of the two devices should solve the problem.
2. You want to bypass a ban.
If your public IP address is associated with behavior that causes a website or email server to ban it, changing your IP address could be a way to bypass that ban. This can happen if someone who had your IP address previously used it to send spam emails, spread malware, or issue a brute force attack on other websites.
