2nd IP address for CPE with SB6190

I know it's possible to have more than one dynamic IPv4 address for my equipment using customer-owned equipment.  I have an Arris SB6190.  In other systems, the ISPs usually allow up to 3 CPE to get an IP address through a single modem.  However, with Xfinity, the default is only one.  Additional public IP addresses for residential circuits is an unusual request, and I have not been able to find anyone on the phone who knows how to do it, probably because their tier-1 is limited in scope.  "Additional IP Addresses" is listed on the rate card for $4.95/month for residential Xfinity.  How do I get the 2nd IP address?

You can't do it with that modem. You need a modem with two ethernet ports. Even then, it's not guaranteed because this is a feature that they are phasing out..
