Somehow, you'd have to 'spoof' your modem/gateway's MAC ID so the network thinks you have a new/different device and assign a new IP address.

You stated this: (quote) "I found out people can search up my username and it gives them my IP Address"

 

If that is the case, wouldn't they be able to do that again no matter what it is changed to ?
