I would like to know how to change the IP address for my computer. I have a laptop with Windows Vista and I have a desktop with Windows XP. Would changing the address effect my wireless networking with my wireless router? Thanks!

It would seem likely that the wireless router would have a dynamic address that is the only one seen on the net. The router has probably established static addresses for the computers and devices on its system. Is there a reason to change your IP address?

There is really no need to change your IP addess, because it changes itself for security purpouses. Its not 100% hacker proof, but its still better than nothing. Here's a website on how to do it, if you want to.
