    Since I only have Premium from 9PM-3AM, I was downloading stuff using my free account. However, I didn't release that even when you have an account, the downloads are still limited. I read that if I just unplug my router for a minute, then plug it back in, I should have a new IP adress and could download all over again. However, I tried doing that, and I got an error that I had downloaded too much and had to wait 2 hrs. How would I go about changing my IP so that MegaUpload will let me download again?

    Some ISPs do not assign a new IP at every power off.
    See proxy connections although I warn you many people use them so you could end up searching for a while.

    Better yet how about something like usenet.

    Usenet isn't free, is it?

    Edit: How do I use those proxies that you provided?

    If your not getting a NEW ip when you cut your connection WAIT a bit longer ... sometimes you get the same IP reallocated to yourself if you reconnect too fast!

    other than that look for proxy surfing or ghost surfing or find a megaupload premium link maker [​IMG]

    On the subject of changing your IP is it not possible just to pick a random IP?

    I changed the last IP of my current IP and didn't get my internets back untill i changed it back. Well i didn't wait long to see if i would get my internet back the led on my router was just red for three secs then i changed it back. Maybe i didn't wait long enough for it to notice and give internets back?

    So far, I've tried everything and nothing works D: Right now I'm trying out that PHProxy thing, but I don't think it works for MegaUpload.
