How to Change IP Address in Windows 7

IP Address stands for Internet Protocol Address is a numerical label assigned to each device participating in a computer network that uses the Internet Protocol to communicate with another via the Internet. An Internet Protocol Address consists of four numbers, each of which contains one to three digits, with a single dot (.) separating each number or set of digits. Each of the four numbers can range from 0 to 255. If you want to change your computer IP Address it can be changed but only after you have received explicit instructions to do this from your network administrator or your ISP, otherwise this could prevent your computer from accessing the Internet properly.
