This is where you need to go.

Get to Network Properties through the Control Panel. Right-Click on it -> Properties. Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) -> Properties.

What you change here is only to connect to the router; it won't change your Internet connection details, IP or whatever; those are handled by the router.

Most routers use DHCP which will assign each computer an IP address on

the network. Normally beinging with 192.168.x.x or you can manually specify a certain range again, like 192.168.0.1 - 192.168.0.255

By default, most routers will assign systems on the network in

sequential order. Thus, keeping the IP scheme simple, or you

can manually assign different IP addesses to the network through the

routers GUI.


QUOTE
DHCP Server
The DI-XXX+ can be setup as a DHCP Server to distribute IP

addresses to the LAN network.
DHCP Server Enabled Disabled
Starting IP Address 192 . 168 . 0 .
Ending IP Address 192 . 168 . 0 .
(SPECIFY) Lease Time


Then with some configuration of this,


QUOTE
Firewall Rules
Firewall Rules can be used to allow or deny traffic from passing

through the DI-XXX


Then you can specify, IP Range, Start IP Range, End Protocol, and Port

Range.

IPFILTERS
MAC FILTERS
URL BLOCKING
DOMAIN BLOCKING
NAT
DMZ

Systems behind the router should be pretty well protected if configured properly. Hope this helps,

Changing the router settings in this instance will make no difference at all because the server is looking at your Internet IP address, not your internal (router) IP address.

Exactly.



If you want to 'spoof' your internet IP address then use a proxy server. If connected properly it will detect proxy server IP address instead of your IP address. To check yourself go to www.ipchicken.com and see what IP address it detects either yours Leased to you by your ISP or the proxy server. :tazz: :)

this thread looks like it's run it's course...but i want to make sure that everyone seeing this knows that we at geeks to go WILL NOT assist you in obfuscating a ban (either on IRC or a game server or anywhere else where you could be banned from using a service) nor will we assist you in breaking the rules of these services (if the server says you can't ghost...then we wont help you ghost)
