How To Reset Your IP Address?

Asked By 50 points N/A Posted on -

I am trying to understand my internet IP address. Is there a way to find out if it is static or not? I turned off my router to clear out the address but it is still the same one. How can you reset it to get another one when you need it?

The alternative method is as follows :
Turn off the main source of power of the modem.
Turn it on after 5 minutes. If the IP address does not change, keep the modem turned off for 24 hours before turning it on.
