About an hour and a half ago, I got Denial of Service attacked. I was wondering if there's an easy way to prevent this from happening again. I wasn't able to change my ip through the router settings, meaning the attacker still has it could do this again anytime.

What leads you to believe you suffered a DDOS attack? Do you have router logs you can post?

I play video games and stream them through www.twitch.tv
Someone in the chat said "I am going to DDoS him" and posted my IP. Shorty after that I lagged out for 2 minutes or so. It started slow, and then I couldn't even browse the web. After those minutes, everything went back to normal.
I don't have router logs.

If the purported attack only affected the game you were playing, I doubt it was a true DDOS attack.
Your first step should be to contact Twitch support and report it. Their logs may show what happened. You'll need date, time and the game.
If the DDOS continues, especially when not gaming, then I would report it to Comcast Security Assurance. They can handle it from there.

It wasn't just the game. I was in a skype call as well, and couldn't use the internet for those few moments. I called Comcast Security. I just downloaded a program to get a log in case this happens again.

Thanks for letting me know.
