What I think you have to do is go to start, control panel, Internet and network connections, Internet connections, right-click on your Internet connection and click on a new IP address. That's how I think it works

Sorry if it doesn't work

Good luck

I just right click on the network connection and select "Repair" - it does that automatically as a part of the repair process.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
