Change Static IP w/ Mac Clone

Recommended Posts

I recently got my Netduma R1 and my ISP has told me multiple times that I have a static IP that cant be changed unless I go into their store and swap out the modem with a new one. I've been hearing that it might be possible to change the IP via mac cloning, but im not entirely sure on how to do this. I attempted once but it didn't seem to work. I went into WAN settings. Enabled Mac Address Clone. Typed in a different MAC address. Clicked Apply. Shut off router and modem for 3 minutes or so, but my IP is still the same. Am I doing something wrong?

Hi Wafflez - if your ISP has assigned you a static IP you probably won't be able to change it. Unless you call up your ISP and ask them to do it.

Mac cloning can cause it to change but only if your ISP is dynamically assigning them and the lease has expired. This page explains this well: https://www.whatismyip.com/what-is-mac-cloning/
