How do I change ip without restart Mac


Hi Dorethadhoward, I believe I can help you in solving this query.

In order to change your IP in the mac computer without restarting it, you need to do the following;

Go to your computer and click on System Preferences > Network

Go to Network > Select Ethernet from sidebar> select 'using DHCP' and ensure the IP address or Subnet mask is listed.

Click on Advanced and press renew DHCP lease.

It is however not easy to change the I.P without accessing the router.

 You can also login to router's admin console and release the I.P address.

When you restart the router, it should work well/ normally

I hope this helps

Thanks and regards
