So I have TWC internet well I guess now they are spectrum, I am a live streamer and people find it funny to hit me offline even when I am not streaming I have a VPN but they got it months ago and now it is out there. I was told by them the only way to change it is to upgrade to business internet which will severely hurt my internet speeds are there any other way I have tried having it unplugged for 8 hours have tried changing MAC address and nothing worked.

Call your ISP, explain your troubles and SHOULD give you a new public IP.

Restarting your router will not give you a new public IP. MAC address wouldn't do anything

Hope this helps

Question: The new modem that they gave me has this does this mean I can change it at anytime now or is this the same as going into cmd and typing ipconfig /release

It's similar. You would use ipconfig to renew your computer's lease with the DHCP service running on your router. There's no way of knowing exactly how your service provider assigns IP addresses upstream of your router, but you could try. You could be assigned the same public IP again. You could leave the gateway off until the lease of unknown duration expires, but that's not a good solution.

Call them.

Sounds like the techs don't have the access they need or are clueless.

Contact your ISP , before you go online. Make sure you have the VPN on. So they don't gain access to your IP Address.
