Changing IP address

I need a couple of websites that I use to stop recognizing me from my IP address. I can't figure out how to change my assigned IP address. I unplugged my modem and router for 18 hours and when I plugged it back in and booted it up I still had the same public IP. Any suggestions?

Re: Changing IP address

If you have a router that has a MAC address cloning feature, you can clone a different MAC address into it. This will force their DHCP server to assign a new / different public / WAN IP address to your connection.
