you want to change your IP address to a different one, for your own reasons. This will be the IP address others can see on the internet. If it is, you can not change the settings in the router as your IP address is allocated through your modem.
Virgin should allocate a IP number for you when you have your modem conected, you can not pick your own number. What you can do is to check your IP address with click here
Then disconnect the modem cable from the virgin socket and switch off the power to the modem. Connect again in a hour and check your IP with the above click here. See if Virgin have allocated a different address.
