I'm getting constant captchas from google and other sites, and I think it's because I happened to be assigned a blacklisted IP. I can't seem to shake my current IP though. I've tried disconnecting the modem overnight and it's still the same IP. Is there any way I can force it to refresh?

If they are targeting your IP address it's likely it's the whole block of addresses your ISP uses so another address may not help.

You may be on a static address which may explain why it doesn't change when you re establish a connection.

I thought you had to pay for static IPs.

Oubadah:

Static ips generally are paid for due to the 1:1 relationship on them.

 

 

 

You may find, your ISP have sticky IPs, not quite static and can change but often they wont. There are many reasons why sticky ips are handy for management.

Also make sure your scan all devices for Malware/virus etc.... just to be sure!

 

Sometimes you may get a Botnet installed on a device and used for all sorts of nasty stuff.

 

Plus there's nothing bad about scanning your devices regularly, if only the entire world did this we would not have as large bot net's around on the internet.

You could turn off your router for 24-48 hours, that'll generally get you a new IP. Not ideal thou for obvious reasons.

You could also ask to bypass cache, I think the IP range is a separate pool from connections using cache, but that was a few years ago so may not be the casecond now
