2nd ip address for SB8200 Modem

Hello I called Comcast today to get a second ip address for my modem. We are creating our google home and have been advised to have a second router for the IOT as recommended recently by the FBI. The employees at the call center were unable to help and didn't think it was possible. I was disappointed but after some research found out that it may be possible.

If someone could help me figure this out that would be great. I have two ports on my modem and two wireless routers but simply need a second ip address to get them running. Perhaps @ComcastAlly Has some suggestions ? Since they have been successful in the past. I tried to pm them but couldnt figure it out.

Thanks
