Change IP Address

Is there a way to obtain a different IP from Comcast?  

 

My router is logging attacks from several IPs on digitalocean.com.  I have contacted Digital Ocean and made them aware of the attacks which helped briefly, but after a couple days the attacks ramped back up.  I read that by replacing my modem I would be assigned a new IP due to the modem's MAC address being different from the old one, but this did not work when I tried it.  How do I go about being assigned a new IP address?

Re: Change IP Address

Are you using a *router* that has a MAC address cloning feature ?

I am.  I've attempted to use the MAC address of one of my other devices but I lose connectivity when I do so.

You have to power-cycle the cable modem after you change the MAC address in the router.
