Change my IP Address

I'd like to change my public ip address. I don't want to have to have somebody come to my house and replace the gateway and pay a bunch of money to do a simple public ip address change.

Changing the gateway may change your IP address, and it may not. The point of dynamic IPs is that they are assigned as needed by the network. Even so, they rarely change at the end point. Moving your ports to a new card at the VRAD should do it, but that's not always an option. The only sure way to control your address is to purchase a static IP.

Here's some articles with information on Static IPs... About Static IPs https://www.att.com/support/article/u-verse-high-speed-internet/KM1002300 
and Static IP Addresses https://www.att.com/support/smallbusiness/article/smb-internet/KM1181996/ . When a static IP is purchased, a tech will be dispatched to your home to manually configure the gateway with the new addresses.

@davemize Is there any way to do it without having to have someone dispatched to my home? Thanks

When I worked for AT&T (through 2016), it was required to have a tech visit to setup static IPs. I haven't heard of this changing since, but it could have. @my thoughts ?

@davemize I'm going to be upgrading my pc soon, and was wondering if changing my motherboard and gpu would have any effect?

Your motherboard change won't affect your IP address.
