How to Change IP Address in Windows XP

Save

If two computers on your network have the same IP address, it causes an IP address conflict. An IP address conflict on a Windows XP computer can prevent the computer from receiving network data and connecting to network resources. To correct this problem, you have to assign a new IP address to the Windows XP computer. You can use the "ipconfig/release" and "ipconfig/renew" commands to change the IP address in the Windows XP operating system.

  • Click "Start" on your Windows XP computer and then select "Run."

  • Type "cmd" into the "Open" field and click "OK." The Command Prompt window opens.

  • Type "ipconfig /release" at the command prompt and press the "Enter" key. The command releases the current IP address.

  • Type "ipconfig /renew" at the command prompt and press "Enter." The command obtains a new IP address for your computer.
