Your router--if you have one--not your cable modem, uses DHCP to assign internal
IP addresses, if DHCP is enabled on the router.
The ipconfig /release
and ipconfig /renew
commands only affect the specified internal IP adapter. The syntax is:ipconfig /release *Con*
where *Con* would be something like "Local Area Connection".
You cannot affect your external IP address with a cable modem account, even if you use your router's Release and Renew features, which disconnects you from, and reconnects you to your ISP, respectively.
