Change IP address and reset dns to change advertisements

As stated in the title because I want to see different advertisements and I am tired of Comcast making it hard to change the ip address manually. Please help

I'm not at all sure that changing your IP and DNS servers will result in "different advertisements", but:

If you're using your own modem and router, the router probably has a "clone MAC address" function that will cause your public IP address to change. You can also set the DNS server addresses of your choice in the router.

 

If you're using a rental Comcast gateway, to change your public IP you'd have to:

  • place the device in bridge mode, or
  • swap out the device for another, or
  • replace your rental gateway with customer-owned equipment

You won't be able to change the DNS server addresses unless you put the gateway in bridge mode and add your own router.
