How to change IP Address

Hello.

I have the DPC3825 and I have had the same IP for almost a year. How do i change my ip address. I was recently ip banned from a game server and I do not want to have to use a VPN.

i dont use any router so I cant clone my mac like I used to be able to do a few years ago with the motorola sb5101 modems

There's no way to guarantee an IP address change.

Once, I unplugged my modem went to the mall and exchanged my modem for another one as I changed my internet package. Got home two hours later and plugged in my new modem with my new package and I still had the same IP address.

I have the Hitron CGN3, and recently added a router so I put the Hitron into bridge mode and my ip changed. Could be a fluke as I didn't perform any further testing.

You were banned for a reason, changing your IP and going back means you are then trespassing.

When you play xBox live now days, random people DDOS people on the other team so that they can win.

Back when we had the Motorola modems we could simply clone the mac address on the router reboot modem, and be issued a new ip.

I'd change my IP when ever I'd get DDOSED so it wouldn't effect me.

But with the new home gateway modems, attaching a router and cloning mac address does not work.

When I switch from using my Hitron CGN3 in Gateway mode to Bridge mode it changes my external IP.

Sure it does, I've released my IP changed the mac address in my router and renewed.. and definitely got a new IP.

4000 years ago, I just needed to power cycle mine. Lol. Apparently it got harder since the good ol days.
