You said that already and they prolly fried the poor thing.
Seems an odd pastime to me ,if it cost me one router already id have at least phoned your Friend and asked him to stop it especially as its the easist fix..
Call you ISP, they are the ones with the power to stop this, they can filter his packets or (if he has the same ISP as you) suspend his connection.
I'm just messing, but you see my point, there is a report post button for a reason
Also it's fire safety awareness month.Be careful or Smokey bear will rape you in the middle of the nite!!!
Which is better than letting the router process it. I would rather my connection get bogged down than my router get taken down by a DDOS attack. If you have a static IP, you don't run from your problems, you confront them. It's not the perfect solution but it is a solution and it does mitigate the problem regardless of the fact that the problem still exists. He might as well enable it, it won't hurt and it can only help.
I would brute force attack his router, and create such a havoc upon his home network that the only thing his pc would be good for, would be a door stop. I would have him carry fruit to my door step as payment while chanting my name to get me to stop... Mua.. hahaha He would find my brute force attach far more powerful than his ICMP attacks. Mua.. hahahaha j/k I don't know how to do that type of thing hehehe or do i?.. lol Actually, I would tell him if he ICMP attacks me one more time then he is gay! and if he does then you have your evidence he is a happy person. Good luck!
and if it's not he might be able get the settings and enter them manually, this way can make them change the ip address. i used to do it with my isp which in my case took 3 days.
other wise complain to the isp as you said, but i would like to know how he knows his supposed friend is attacking him.
Yea, honestly I would do like W1zard said and get another IP. I would disconnect your modem to get a new Ip for your modem. If you disconnect your router you're only going to get a new ip in your lan and not your wan. You can check your wan IP by going to www.ipchicken.com. I would go there and write down your ip and then disconnect your modem and router and reconnect modem then router and go back to that website to make sure your IP changed. If that doesn't work then I'd call your ISP. What kind of modem are you using? do you have the admin password to it? if so then you can try like asrock said and manually change your ip. Just remember to change the last set. the example 192.168.1.X you want to change the X. You can also connect to a proxy until he gets bored and stops.
EDIT: When you disconnect I would wait 5 to 10 minutes before reconnecting to ensure you get a new IP.
I thought a recommended a sure fire way to fool DHCP into giving you a new IP.
some implementations link the IP to your contract/login/physical line
True he has to wait till his lease is up good call, if you don't get one after waiting say 10 minutes then yea try an hour..
some routers tell you how long the lease is ( mine says there is a day left ). As i said if you fix the details that the modem gives the router and use static IP on the router it will time it out sooner or later.
As does my cable modem, but this guy hasn't told us what modem he is using.. I just set up a company last week and they are using u-verse and I was very surprised that it was a modem/router/wireless device aio.. I have to say it was pretty cool little unit. I didn't setup it up... I just setup a few desktops for them. I would have liked to mess around with it, in my past I usually hate dealing with any at&t dsl hardware, but that was so much better than those others i've used. So, I wouldn't be surprised what this guy is using.
Please, OP, specify what you are using in order for us to properly assist you.
If it's a "residential gateway" (modem/router combo) doing what you need to do to release and renew and obtain a new IP may be more diffcult. Also Some of those might not even have the proper config menu options to perform the action.
a question , u have any service running like dydns (did i missed it) ? i wonder how he gets your IP all the time, if so disable it, change the dyndns name ....
wait wait... how do you know the one who attack you is your friend?
if he said that, why dont you ask him to stop or....
yeahh. you know what i mean
using the settings in the router may not stop the attack, but to him it will LOOK like its not working.
call your ISP and ask for an IP change, or do the things already suggested in the thread (change MAC address, punch friend in the face, tazer him, etc)
