    My router's IP was banned from a website, and I figured leaving the router off for 12 hours would reset it, but it still seems to be banned. If I use a direct connection from my modem to my PC, it works fine, so does anyone know how to change the IP on a Microsoft router?

    You can always call your ISP and ask them to do it.

    If you have a static IP, you can't. (Literally speaking)
    Use a proxy.

    Most connections nowadays have dynamic IPs, try unplugging the router and cable/DSL modem for ten minutes.

    How is calling my ISP going to get me around an IP ban on my router?

    I can access the website with a direct connection to my modem, meaning my IP from my ISP isn't banned.

    The site banned your IP. Calling the ISP and asking them to change the IP will change the IP.

    What's so hard to understand?

    Also, 192.168.x.x (the router's IP) isn't the one that sites ban.

    Then how come I can get on the site fine without using my router?

    When I go on the site with the router, I'm banned.

    When I go on the site without the router, I'm fine.

    I've explained this like 3 times.

    When I access the website while connected to my router, I am banned

    When I connect directly to my modem, and then go to the website I am not banned.

    Does it say you're banned or does it simply not load the page?

    I'm taking time with this because it makes zero sense that whether or not you're connected to a certain router makes all the difference.

    If what you say is true (shouldn't be) you have to set a static ip on your router for your computer so its different then the one you usually use.

    How do I do that? I tried changing my router's static IP (was set up for uTorrent) already, but that didn't seem to work.

    Not sure if you quite understand routing at all. Not sure of your specific setup either. Do this. Look up your IP address when you're directly connected to the modem by going to one of those what's my ip sites. Then connect through the router and do the same thing. Tell me if they are the same or different.

    If they are the same, you are probably not IP banned and the problem lies elsewhere (likely with you).

    If they aren't the same, you are using a public IP address and that means you are using two IP addresses to communicate with the internet. Solution would to be to make your IP address private.

    But the problem could be something entirely different because of the lack of information.

    Edited:

    Ok, looks like you screwed that up and made it a public address. May just want to set the router to default settings because it would be easiest if you don't know what you're doing.

    Edited:

    If what you say is true (shouldn't be) you have to set a static ip on your router for your computer so its different then the one you usually use.
    Nah that's is probably the problem. Not sure if he has two different public IP addresses, usually you only get one and then everything on your network has a private IP, but the issue looks to be that he has two public addresses, and that makes perfect sense with what's wrong.

    You can get sued if you're using an IP that doesn't belong to you, so you may want to change it, unless your ISP provides with with more than 1 public IP.

    They'll be different. His ISP probably uses MAC addresses to assign IPs via DHCP. If I swap my home router, my IP changes.

    192.168.x.x is a private IP not a public one, you can't access the internet on one the router is the DHCP

    Most DHCP servers have a lease time of 24 hours. though that isn't a standard, you can set it to be a week or a month pretty easily. Leaving a modem off for 12 hours won't do anything unless you catch DHCP server at the time of the update.

    Routers have their own IP address because they have their own MAC address which makes the ISPs DHCP server give it one. You can have a pile of different routers and they'll all have different IP addresses.

    I thought modems had a mac address meaning that it shouldn't matter what you do in the network, your modem's mac address will still be the same. Unless I'm missing something.

    So change your router's IP from within it's settings.

    It's not fucking rocket science, it's just an IP address for fuck's sake.

    ISPs assign external IP addresses, not routers.

    He clearly stated that he can connect without the router. External IPs should always be dynamic. Maybe he just needs to unplug his modem for a day and ride it out. :/

    When my MAC address is different from my standard one, my ISP won't let me access internet and will only show red page with message. That's why my router is using my PC's mac so it can access internet.
    So if OP's isp gives new ip to every new mac address, can't he just change mac on his router and get a new ip?

    This seems strange but, isn't it possible for a website to mistake a router for a pc and ban it? This could be because of the operation of the router which routes the different ips of the pcs connected to it and translates it to one ip for the modem to accept.

    Uhh, never heard of it. Unless it's a mac ban, but sites can't read mac address, so that can't be.
