There are a few ways, depending on your Internet service provider.

However this will not change your hardware ID "MAC address"

Mind if I ask why?

Dr.D

No I do not mind I want to hide the IP if I can retain a new one.
Was hacked into a few months back and figured there's a way to get one then maybe I may be able to hide it?
At this point I can not even figure out how to find what my IP is now?
Is that possable at all.

I can tell you that in my professional belief that you were not hacked by a hacker using your IP.

I have delt with this from customers many times and the main cause isnt some random hacker with your IP, it is malware or spyware that is firmly rooted in your system sending your IP as well as all of your personal info to some hacker/shady dirtball.

In this day and age it really doesnt matter what OS you are using the malware out in the wild for every single OS from Windows to OSX is insane, and for those that are using any google products (running Linux)the new malware in the last month alone is over 500 new cases of malware that sends your info back to its creator.

You can get a new IP by swapping your modem out with your ISP, although 1 line of malicious code and it is all for nothing and you are at square 1 all over again.

If you have a wireless router from Linksys, Netgear, Etc. there is a nasty piece of malware that infects that as well(although rare)

What version of Windows are you using?
What antivirus are you running? (Most anti-viruses dont even detect the easiest malware)

What anti-spyware/malware programs do you run?

Do you have Malwarebytes Free edition on your system? When installing take the checkmark out of the box to enable trial of Pro edition and let it update. After you run it if it finds anything under show results make sure you select all and remove the infestatipon. Can be obtained here http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-An...ductListing;pop

If you are running a full scan it will take a while(sometimes hours), if you run a quick scan depending on how much it finds could be as long as 20 mins.

I do repairs privately as well but I can usually walk most through it online.

If you would like to contact me about a repair shoot me an email tunesrus@gmail.com or click on my name to the left and send me a PM

Oh you should also do the following to make sure that someone isnt shadowing you. Click on Start / Control Panel/ Network and Internet / Internet options / Then click on the connections tab in internet options/ then click on Lan Settings. Once you are in LAN settings make sure that the box is not checked for proxy server.
