How to Get a New IP Address From Time Warner
Learn how to release your computer's current IP address and obtain a new one from Time Warner Cable.
Release your current IP address and obtain a new one from Time Warner Cable by resetting your network adapter.
Resetting your network adapter only changes your current IP address if you have a standard Internet connection with dynamic IP. If you are a corporate customer and purchased Internet service with fixed IP address, contact Time Warner Cable by phone or email to request a new IP address.
Open the Start menu or Start screen and type Network. Select Network and Sharing Center from the search results.
Select Change Adapter Settings from the sidebar to open the Network Connections window.
Right-click the network adapter and select Disable from the contextual menu. If prompted, click Yes to allow Windows to disable the network adapter.
- Check your current IP address by selecting Status from the contextual menu and clicking the Details button. The Network Connection Details window lists your IP address next to IPv4 Address.
- Depending on your hardware and software configuration, the Network Connections page may list multiple adapters. Disable the adapter labeled Local Area Connection or Ethernet if you use a wired connection to connect to the Internet. Alternatively, disable the Wireless Network Connection adapter if you connect to the Internet wirelessly.
Enable the network adapter by right-clicking it and selecting Enable from the menu. Wait a few seconds for your computer to connect to the network, get a new IP address and restore normal Internet connectivity.
