It depends on who your ISP is and if they use DHCP and how they use it. If it's a cable broadband ISP, then usually you can change the MAC address of the router (WAN interface) and then reboot the modem, wait until its back to normal, then reboot the router. The modem will see the router as a new device (since different MAC) and assign it a new public IP. For more specific instructions, please advise.

A interface is just a word meaning the connection type. On the back of your router, there are 4 Local Area Network(LAN) connections and 1 Wide Area Network(WAN) connection. The WAN port has a MAC address associated with it. A MAC address is a unique ID that every networking device has assigned to it. Think of it like it's online fingerprint. The MAC address is assigned a IP through a process called DHCP. If you want to change your IP, you have to change the MAC address on the router that the modem is seeing.  How you change the MAC address on a router is different for each router. What model router and modem do you have?

Then I don't know how I can help. No offense, but it sounds like you are trying to do something outside the scope of your ability. If finding your routers model number is beyond your ability, then so is changing your IP. I can't give you a easy answer. Either you have to learn how to do what you are trying to do or give up and live with how it works now.

What made you say VPNs take forever to load? Have you ever had a premium version of any VPN? I bet no, so here's what you can do; Get yourself a premium account of a well known VPN (I'm using PureVPN without any speed issues), and then get a dedicated IP from the same. They'll charge you less than a dollar for it. And you're good to go.
