Direct Denial of Service (DDoS) Prevention
Using a Virtual Private Network (VPN)
Playing behind a Virtual Private Network (VPN) is one of the best and easiest solutions to preventing DDoS attacks. Once connected to a VPN, sharing your PC's internet connection with your games console (via an ethernet cable) will hide your true IP address, preventing you from being subject to a DDoS attack. A good site to compare VPN's is https://www.bestvpn.com/.Windows Users
Hiding Your IP Address on Skype
Dynamic IP Address
Most Internet Service Providers (ISP) will provide you with a Dynamic IP Address. This means that you can generate a new IP address simply by unplugging your router for 2-3 minutes and then plugging it back in. If you feel you have been the victim of a DDoS attack we recommend that you generate a new IP address at the earliest opportunity.
Static IP Address
Some Internet Service Providers (ISP) will provide you with a Static IP Address. This means that you cannot generate a new IP address by yourself. We recommend phoning up your ISP to ask if they can switch you from a static to a dynamic IP.
Router 'Modem Mode'
Some routers will allow you to place them into a 'Modem Mode' in which it will generate a new IP address every time you plug in a new device. A guide to putting the Virgin Media Superhub into modem mode can be found here.
