I have tried that /release /renew thing in cmd prompt, doesnt work, I have also disconnected and reconnected my modem, still didnt change.

IP's are leased to ISP's for a certain period of time and therefore you cannot manually change your IP address yourself. If you do a ipconfig /all, you will see when the IP was obtained and when it will be released.

are you using a broadband connection. Power cycling the broadband connection (cable/DSL Modem) may assign you a new IP depending on how your ISP configured lease expiration options on their DHCP server...Also that will only be your public ip address if you are using a router that provides NAT/PAT..it will always be a 192.168.x.x address

Well if youve ever heard of diablo 2, they have something called realm down, whitch temp ban's your connection for 1-24+ hours, but if you reset your MAC address ( not 100% sure) it should reset your ip? But anyway, yea that is why i want to reset my ip so i can play the game agian, it disconnects you for making too many games per hour, not sure, i might have passed the limit.
