On a typical DSL setup, the LAN IP (your internal network) will be the default gateway.

You typed that address into your browser and hit Enter to log into the configuration page for the modem, which also routing functionality.


Once there, you look for something along the lines of "MAC Address Clone" or WAN IP release.

It could be any one of a number of different names, depending on the software is designed.


Changing the MAC address on the modem forces it get a new IP from the provider. Once you have the new IP, you simply dump all Arfcom's cookies from Firefox and go back to sign up for a new account.


Post the exact model of the modem and I can help with more detailed instructions.


Do you have an additional router between the DSL modem and the computer? If so, you can make changes there as well.


The only other way to do it is to disconnect from the DSL long enough for them to drop your IP lease.

Typically, that will be 24 hours, but it could be longer.


You can check your IP at



When changes are made, go back there and confirm that it has changed.

The IP address is assigned by AT&T. As Tucker301 said it is somewhat persistent. If you could shut off the DSL modem for 24hrs it may come back on with a new IP address. Use the link he recommended to check before and after to make sure you got a new one.


Your idea of blaming it on a teenage may be faster and less frustrating than waiting days for it to reset. Just tell them your account got hijacked and you're finding yourself blacklisted or unable to connect to sites you have always used. "Tech Support" on one of the forums suggested changing IP addresses.


You could also disconnect the modem. Call for tech support and play dumb; "No, its connected up OK but its completely dead! Here let me plug my clock radio into that outlet...see it's getting power. Can you send me a replacement modem right away?". They will probably send out a new modem which should pull a different address as well.
