If i re-installed Mac OS X would that change my ip adress?
If you don't mind me asking, why do you want to change your IP address?
It could change the way your network connection is configured, so the answer is...DEPENDS
because I do.....it's nothing bad or anything...i just do.
It may do if you get your IP from a DHCP server, but it changes randomly sometimes anyway.
Since you have no idea what you are doing, don't bother reinstalling OS X. To change your IP, you can do it in the Network Preferences. However, depending on your network setup , you may not have the luxury of changing your IP address. So before you attempt to solve all your worries so The Man can't find you, you should probably explain your network setup. Are you at home, at school, who's your ISP, are you using a proxy, firewall, or router device...and so on...
nevermind its for a really stupid reason anyway and is just not worth it.
What a pointless thread
go on, i think we all wanna know why now>?
I enjoy watching people walk down my street with laptop and connect to MY IP address with there laptops.
It pisses me off.
You can only blame yourself since you have an unprotected access point. Lock it down, and make it such that only you (and other authorized machines) can connect.
ok if you must know to get back into this forum I was blocked from.
ps. I know this was a pointless thread and I'm sorry, but thank you all for trying to help.
What site? What did you do to get blocked/banned?
Living With Style
I was in the flame boards and took it a lil too far and really really flamed a mod. and h banned me for mad sass.
IP addresses are typically assigned to you (using DHCP) by some entity outside of your computer, like a router, a corporate network, or your upstream cable/DSL company, so reinstalling the OS has no real bearing on whether your IP address changes.
You were banned. You deserved it. Get over it.
