Force renew IP address

Is there a way to force the DHCP server to give me a new IP?  When I hit the "release/renew" button on the status page (this is for the T1200H), it cycles (ISP goes from green "connected" to yellow "connecting", then back) , but comes back with the same IP.

You would need to leave your system disconnected for the lease time to expire & your IP to to be assigned to another user.

You MIGHT be able to speed things if you can change the MAC address of your gateway to confuse the DCHP server, but that's about it.

 

There is another conversation asking a similar question on the forum.
