that's going to do nothing for this situation.

the game server could care less about the guy's LAN IP, it's probably caring about the PUBLIC IP of the modem.

go to www.whatsmyip.com and take note of what your current public IP is, then unplug the power from your modem, wait a minute, and plug it back in. then go back to www.whatsmyip.com and see if the number has changed
