Please guide me how can I get multiple IP's on a single computer. I am using Windows 7. My old IP is blocked at a website and I am looking for a new IP for it. Thanks in advance.

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

You need to provide a lot more information. What OS are you using? What are you trying to accomplish? – Keltari Dec 3 '13 at 15:58
Can you describe what you want more? I get that you are trying to get more IPs to one NIC, but why? What are you actually trying to do? That info helps because trying to accomplish this may not be the right solution for the problem. – nerdwaller Dec 3 '13 at 15:58
@Keltari he says he's on Windows 7, but yes, some further info is required. – sgtbeano Dec 3 '13 at 16:00
Depending on what you are actually trying to do and why you want to do this it may not be possible. If you are doing this at home you will most likely be behind an appliance of some sort and having multiple IPs for your computer will make no difference to the rest of the internet. – EBGreen Dec 3 '13 at 16:19 it's free and that's the right way to do what you want to do – Lynob Dec 3 '13 at 18:15

It is not your PC's IP that is blocked but the IP seen by the website which is often a different IP which is given to you by your ISP (and set to your router).

One thing you can try is unplug your router and/or modem for a few hours/days and see if you get a new IP assigned to you, or you can call your ISP and ask them nicely to give you a new IP.

Other than that there is not much you can do to change your IP on the internet unless you want to go through a Proxy first.

This depends on the router you are using. You can try to disconnect the internet connection and reconnect it. So for example, if you have DSL, you can try to disconnect the DSL cable and replug it. Normally you get a new IP with every new internet connection.

How would this cause two IPs to be assign to the same device? – EBGreen Dec 3 '13 at 20:27
@EBGreen Thanks for pointing this out. I edited my answer. When disconnecting and reconnecting to the Internet, you normally get a new IP. This is what the questioner asked for. You do not get two IPs then, but this is not necessary for the questioner (his current IP is blocked, he wants to get around that). – Werner Henze Dec 4 '13 at 8:05
