Unplug your router for like 5 minutes then turn it on again.

Tried that, it is supposed to flush your ip, doesn't do it on mine!

Run CMD as Adminstrator and type ipconfig /flushdns.

Just tried this. I got nothing, it's still the same :/
Why do you want to change your address?

I have just been browsing their forums and apparently, VM don't change IP addresses for some reason. Other ISPs do though, fyi.

The only way to immediately change your WAN IP address is to go into modem only mode.

Then the client MAC of the adapter on the PC will determine the WAN IP address issued. From that point onwards if you wish to change your IP again you may be able to change the MAC on the PC Ethernet adapter (some let you, some don't).

Doesn't always work.
