So recently I have joined a website(The name is not important) In which I am staff on.
My so called "Job" is to remove players from the servers. As you could probably imagine, people do not enjoy getting blacklisted/banned from our servers.
When under the DDoS attack, My computer is showing an active internet connection. Sometimes it has a yellow caution sign on it, sometimes not. Either way I cannot connect to any website.
They proceed to DDoS me about it, even though that won't help them at all. So I had a couple questions.
1: Will typing in cmd
do anything to my IP address? If they do not have my current IP address I would imagine they cannot attack me.
2: In response to #1, do I need to be able to browse the web to do this?
3: Is there any way I can get the incoming IP by myself, or is that something strictly my ISP can do?
Thanks for the help in advance.

Well changing your local IP wouldn't do much except well... changing the local IP on your DHCP server on your router. This wouldn't change your global IP. If you contacted your ISP about this I'm sure they'd be able to help in either blocking those IP's or swapping out your IPv4 (or IPv6) address. You could always disable any ports on your router as well so they don't have anything to attack, but I'm not quite the expert on these kind of things so that's about all I can suggest, sorry! ^^;

That is internal IP only.
To change your external IP you need a dynamic IP.
To change a dynamic IP, disconnect your router for about 5 mins. Then reconnect. ipconfig /release ipconfig /renew
actually with twc, just changing the NIC would get you a new IP. they typically tie your ip to the mac address. definitely need to tighten security on router.

usually turning off your internet gateway for 10 minutes and turning it back on will give you a new external ip

Depending on what kind of ISP you have and whether or not you're assignaed a dynamic IP you can usually change your external IP address on two different ways:
