    You could use the ipconfig release and renew commands, but chances are you're just going to get your old IP address back.We can change the IP address and DNS servers using the built-in utility in Windows called “Netsh”.

    Use Netsh.exe, it is a tool an administrator can use to configure and monitor Windows-based computers at a command prompt.when you use Netsh you need to specify what network properties you need to change,The "interface ip set address" command changes the IP to 192.168.1.101.
    Code:
    netsh interface ip set address "Local Area Connection" static 192.168.1.101 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.5 1
    netsh interface ip set dns "Local Area Connection" static 192.168.1.200 primary
