My IP address has changed

Post by jlakat » Tue Mar 01, 2011 12:01 pm

My IP address (Ohio) has changed to an IP address in Romania. Was 224.223.xxx.xxx and now is 195.110.x.xx . I don't know if I did it or if it was done to me. I just need to restore it to the original IP asap, as this is realllly inconvenient. Please help. Many Thanks!

Hi. Thanks for the follow up.
I knew something was wrong when Google started requiring a captcha for every search, and an online vendor I do a lot of transactions with started showing my checkout totals in Ron (Romanian currency), with a 20% VAT added. That's when I did 'whatsmyip' and found it had been changed.

My ISP provider (Time Warner) couldn't find any problems, so I did a system restore to 2 days prior. Problem Fixed. Still don't have any clue why/how it occurred. Now I'm going over my actions from that restore point to 2 days later to see if I can figure it out. I really didn't do anything crazy :)

I even did a complete system scan with Norton 360 to see if I had been hacked - everything checked out OK.

All's well that ends well, I guess.

Thanks for checking in with me. Joe
