I If your PC is wired, go to network and sharing centre - go to the left and click "Change adapter settings". Select the connected LAN, and go into properties, and you can manually configure the IP to whatever IP you want. A class C address I assume, since your examples were 192.168.x.x
But remember wans, and lans are completely different and should not be mixed together with a range of IP's. It will cause confusion.

First we need to know the current setup. What is the model number of your ISP modem and what kind of router do you have? Ideally if you are using the isp's device and a router of your own. The ISP's modem needs to assign you with a public IP address IE 98.30.74.X (Time warner) on your router's Wan port if its not then you need to place the isp's device in bridge mode. Your routers Lan IP should be set in the 192.168.1.1 (or private)range. If you have the new at&T uverse modem it needs to be placed in bridge mode, the new docsis 3 series from Timewarner also need to be put in bridge mode. If you do not bridge the ISP device you will be doing doing double nat and your ping latency times will be horrible and internet speeds will suffer. Easy fix dont use your own router if the isp provides you with one, or buy your own that is compatible with your ISP and stop paying the rental fee for the modem.
