hello roomates! I know I'm going to sound a bit like an idiot, but I could use some direction I'm using verizon and their broadband dsl DHCP I have a 3 or 4meg connection I wanted "PPPOE" because when I lived in a different area and used "dsl extreme" and then another time "ATT" I was able to change my ip address very quickly from either my router or modem....(but for now I have to stay with verizon !) So I loved PPPOE ! the problem is since I don't have "pppoe" instead I have dhcp it seems the only way I can change my IP now is by accessing the modem ; "Westell 6100g" is the model I can still change my address but it takes soooo much longer!! it makes changing ip's a major pain in the ass!! Verizon told me they can only give me "DHCP" in my current area of course it was only there "fumbling" tier 1 support anyone know if I can change IP's using the DHCP, but in a faster fashion? your help would be greatly appreciated hali~! PS: I am unable to change the IP through my router it has no affect at all so I seem to be stuck with using the modem to change it...I can change the "mac" address in the router, but it doesn't change the IP!
