First off, why do you want to change your IP address?

 

You'll have to connect to the router and it should be one of the settings.  You will need to power off the modem after you change the MAC address.

You have to disconnect your modem for anywhere from 24 to 48 hours and even that may not get you a new IP address.

Your IP address is provided to you by your ISP.  YOU don't normally get to change that regardless of if you are able to change your MAC address.  What killroy suggested is true.  You can try to take your modem out of the DHCP pool for a day or two and sometimes you can even call your ISP and request they change your IP address (but sometimes they can't or won't) Getting IP banned by a website or service does not provide easy ways to circumvent their ban.  Sometimes you need to try and contact the web admin and work towards a solution.

No it isnt...YOUR LOCAL IP address is dynamic but the IP address of your cablemodem is ASSIGNED by your ISP.

 

Maybe you will get a more desired response if posting your issue in a more appropriate section of the forum Networking
