    Hi, I have a WRT54GL with tomato firmware and comcast broadband. i used to use a d-link. to reset my ip for various reasons (bad disconnects from games, development etc) I just had to go to the admin panel, release the dhcp, then unplug the router and modem for ten minutes. I tried that with the wrt54gl and tomato and it doesn't work. is there any process I can go through to force an IP change? (my isp doesnt have static ips_

    Shouldn't get banned from sites so much... :wink:

    the IP you get from Comcast is linked to the MAC address on the device directly connected to your cable modem....

    Changing your WAN mac address, followed by unplugging the router and cable modem and the replugging both of them in should give you a new IP address.

    What are you doing that's forcing you to need a new IP address?

    i dont really care about being banned from sites, i don't take that seriously. the main reason i need it is because on an RPG i play, when you get disconnected, you cant reconnect because it says "same IP"

    I tried cloning the MAC address from the PC that connects wirelessly to the router, but then I couldn't access the internet wirelessly.
