Unfortunately most technology that offers this sort of protection is very expensive enterprise type stuff. Load balancers, firewalls, IDS/IPS all that sort of stuff. I can elaborate if you want, but I figure you're looking for a cheap solution.

If you are being DDoS'd the easiest way to repel the attacker is to blacklist the IPs they are using to bring down your connection.

a few options come to mind. i leave them to your discretion.

1 - unplug the network cable
2 - buy hardware that blocks it
3 - burn down his/her house
4 - move
5 - choose your friends more carefully
6 - DDOS attack him/her
7 - make it seem like he/she is downloading tons of kiddie porn and then call the FBI

You can change your private IP but you cannot change your public IP given to you by your ISP. Changing your private IP will do nothing to mitigate a DDoS attack.

wouldn't unplugging the modem for a while and then plugging it back in basically dish out a whole new public IP anyways?

Not unless you've figured out a way to wipe your ISP's DHCP logs or are willing to wait for the timeout period.

any idea what the timeout period would be? is it like 30min? if it's that short, then maybe a solution is to put the modem/router onto a wall timer that "unplugs" it for 30-60min in the middle of the night, every night. just an idea...

I do not know enough about how ISP's assign IPs to sufficiently answer the question.

Regardless, DDoS attacks must be addressed at the boundary of any network. If you do not have any hardware solution to defend against such an attack you are vulnerable until the attack happens. At that point you can begin blacklisting IPs like I said.

It differs for each ISP. And I've been given the same public IP address after a full week away, and everything off.

3, 6, & 7 are illegal.

If there is a will there is a way. Pretty sure you can contact ur service provider and ask them to change it with a toll

Sorry for late response, how will I be able to blacklist IP's (opting out the option of buying physical hardware)
