How to force Comcast IP address to change
If you use Comcast Cable Internet service, you've probably noticed that the IP address hasn't changed for over a year and even though Comcast service tech support says your IP is dynamic, it's really pretty much static (saving you the $7.99 static IP fee).

For some reason, if you need to change your external IP address, Comcast support will tell you to do a power cycle which is basically:

Turn off your router and Comcast modem.
Wait for 20 seconds (or upto 2 minutes).
Turn on the Comcast modem, wait for a minute and then turn on the router.
You should have a new IP address.
Unfortunately, this doesn't work most of the time when you're behind a router (Linksys WRT-54G in my case). Comcast insists that your IP is changed, but a quick check of my IP address shows that my IP is still the same.

The real solution to this is to change the MAC address of your WAN device in your router configuration:

Charter and other cable companies could ditch video, and it might not be a bad thing, analyst says | FierceVideo
But Moffett points out that smaller cable companies are seeing their video subscriber bases evaporate much faster than their larger peers, and that is by choice. While Comcast and Charter’s video subscriber losses are tracking at 1.7% and 1.4% respectively, Cable One’s annual declines are at 10.3% and Mediacom’s are at 5.5%.

Cable One management told MoffettNathanson that it loses money on every individual subscriber.
