How can I change my IP?

I've tried many many many things, it just seems like my router is only a Static IP and Not Dynamic, I'm in need of changing my IP because someone got it and they have malicious intentions such as DOS, etc. The current model of my router is Cisco DPC3941T.


I have tried everything from changing the mac address, unplugging the router for 5 minutes, even just simply trying to change it through windows CMD didn't work, I'm in need of help here because I need to get my IP Switched

The only way to change the public IP of a rental gateway device is to either:

  • Swap out the gateway for another one, or
  • Put the gateway in bridge mode and add a separate router.
