So, by changing your computer's Internet IP, everything will be fine.

There are a few ways to change your IP address. The easiest and most common way is to restart your internet modem or router. This typically gives you a new IP address from your internet service provider (ISP). However, your ISP may reuse IP addresses after a certain period of time, so this is not a permanent solution.

Another way to change your IP address is to use a virtual private network (VPN). When you connect to a VPN, your traffic is routed through a server in another location, which gives you a new IP address.

If you need a more permanent solution, you can ask your ISP for a static IP address. This is a service that some ISPs offer for a fee.
