Hi, your question would get more specialist and quick response if you put it in the Networking Forum.

Sorry I cant help you personally.

if xp start/run cmd which will open a dos box type in ipconfig and this will show your current ip address to change this type on the next line ipconfig release.
when it sys zeros for ip address then type the same again but adding renew at the end and wait for pc to connect again and you will have a new ip address, hope this helps.
