So I've noticed that ever since I've gotten CableOne, my public IP address has been the exact same. I was wondering, how would I change it to make it dynamic (for anonymity)?

Unless you are paying extra for a static IP. It is very unlikely that your IP is static. I have tracked my public IP in the past and I have had the same IP renew for two or three years at time. I do not have a static IP. Having a dynamic IP does not give you any degree of anonymity. It's still tied to your ISP. It's still public.

Sorry for old post but a easy way to change your IP if your ISP uses DHCP is to change the MAC address of your router(WAN). Then reboot your modem. This won't work if you have a gateway though.
