    I have a ATT 2701HG-B Gateway (DSL modem router) for my ATT DSL connection.
    I want to change of IP so on the administration web page at 192.168.1.254 , I can restart the modem and it change of IP.
    The problem is that the restart takes a long time.
    That's why I would prefer a DHCP release and renew. I think that it would take a shorter time to change of IP, am I right?
    But I don't see this possibility of release-renew on the administration web pages of my modem.
    Is there another recent DSL modem router that could work with ATT and do a release-renew? If yes, what brand and modem?
    Thanks

    If I'm not mistaken release and renew will only change the IP issued to you by the router, and has nothing to do with the IP issued to you from your ISP, resulting no change to your external public IP.

    You might or might not see a change in the IP from your ISP. However, even if you do, you're going to be assigned an IP from within a finite pool of IP's, also known as a subnet. Eventually, and probably sooner than later, you'll end up with the same IP you had few cycles ago.

    That being said, ActionTek makes a modem that cycles very quickly. Unfortunately, the name and model number escapes me at the moment.

    Get the motorola 2210, put in bridge mode and create a simple bat file to redia the pppoe connection. You'll have a new ip in 3 seconds or less... (I do this for a living) :)

    those are the current models. do they all have the ability to reset the ip from the web interface? i was using just a modem before, would the wireless router with the modem be a problem for ip changing?
