Hello I play online games and some people seem to take it a little more serious then most by ddosing other players. This is not new to me I have been ddosed several time but i always just changed my ip and it stopped, recently i have been ddosed multiple times a day and it doesn't seem to help to change my ip they still ddos me. I'm no techy by far. How are they doing this and what can I do to stop it?

hardware firewall or software firewall with DDoS protection or as i call it, black hole ;-)

be sure you have NAT active on your modem/wifi router
if you aren't behind a router, get one
NAT keeps you safe by hiding your computer behind a private ip address, your public IP address stops at the modem...

what game are you being ddosed on? and have you tried a different server??

also, what type of internet connection are you on? (dsl, cable, fiber, etc)
Even the experts started out as beginners
