It's more than a simple IP lockout (which in and of itself is a stupid way to handle this type of issue).  My daughter has this issue.  Somehow an extra few characters were added to the "Account" field (resulting in her email address plus a few extra invalid characters), which made the account being logged into the wrong account, not even her own account.  She was entering the right password, she just didn't see that there was extra characters in the account field.

I changed my daughter's IP address on our network (and did the requisite ipconfig /release & /renew to pick up the new IP address), and it still won't let her login using valid credentials. I also can't login to my own account on her system.  She can login to her account from my system on the same network, no problem. I can login to my own account on my system as well.

Given that I've given her PC a new IP address, and the issue persists, I assume this means they actually put something in her local config files (or *shudder* her registry) on her PC that will self-destruct after some amount of time (rather than manage the lock-out on a simple timer at the server end, like EVERY OTHER ONLINE GAME).  If in fact the lockout timer is 24 hours, that's a crappy way to deal with the issue of failed logins.  Too many ways that can screw a player when there was no ill intent or foul play.

To fix This problem Just open your CMD Promting and type in ipconfig /Release, after that you will lose your internet connection and this will be fixed with the following type in ipconfig /renew  hit enter and that should have fixed the problem, and also very important  is that if the changes didnt take imidiate effect then PLS restart the pc and your problem will be solved ! NOTE try to login befor you restart if it doesnt let you log in and prompts you with the same login error then restart the PC, after that the Problem should be resolved, it worked fine for me !

I changed my daughter's IP address on our network !

It seems to me that you have a different problem since you went and changed the IP on Router/Modem/Windows Network Sharing center, revert thoughs changes and just do the simple IP release & IP renew config ! dont manualy change the IP since you dont have a static IP from your ISP!

Changing your device IP on the local network doesn't change your external IP address, the one assigned to your ISP modem, you would need to get a new IP from the modem itself. Restarting the modem can sometimes do that or you may need to call your ISP.

I had this Problem with the Epic Game's Launcher.... Six Months later it still refused to let me Log In....
