Assuming you are using dynamic ip assignment (DHCP) from your router, you have a couple of options.
1. Try the CMD's ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew (these both must be done, in that order). You still might get the same ip address however.
or
2. Change the routers ip address pool so that there is room on your subnet for a fixed ip - then adjust the connection properties on your pc to used a fixed ip (on same subnet, but outside of the pool)

But to really be able to answer you question you'll need to explain why you want to change it - for example are you having ip conflict issues?

if you need to change your local IP (smth like 192.168.1.1. or 127.0.0.1 etc), right-click the connection icon, go to Properties -> General -> Internet Protocol(TCP\IP)

And then....??? Is it going to magically fix itself?

Perhaps the proper question would be this: Do you want to change your internal network IP, or do you want to change the IP coming into the network? If you are trying to change the IP coming into the network, ipconfig /renew will not work. Nor will manually changing the network properties. So until I am a bit more clear on which IP address you want to change, I can't be much more helpful.

I admin'd a large aquarium forum. My guess as to why he was blocked is maybe he made some bad choices posting and was banned?

Even if you were to use a proxy and get into the desired board or website again, you may not see the familiar formatting of the pages that you were used to

If your ISP does not use an static IP, like a PAT pool, you could try to restart your D-Link.
