How to Change IP Address in Windows XP


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.
