what is an easy way to change the IP?

I have an RG 3801 and I wanted to change the external (Broadband) IP. I tried to reset the IP from the Gate Home menu , but it comes back the same like before. How can I change that?

I believe you should be over in the Uverse/Internet section.

 

There is no easy way to do that with Uverse Internet because the system likes for you to have the same IP address all the time for network efficiency. It's not officially a static IP because it can change, but it is often referred to a sticky dynamic IP because it seldom changes. Short of powering down your RG or a factory reset (and that is not guaranteed), I don't think there is any way for the customer to force an IP renewal.
