Considering this, is it possible to change the IP address?
One of the easier methods to change your IP address is to turn off your modem/router/computer overnight. Then turn it back on the following morning. This method will not work if your ISP has a long lease time set for your IP. This is possible, but you run a risk of your ISP banning you from connecting to the internet.
Can my Internet provider change my IP address?

If you're wanting to change your IP address, try disconnecting and reconnecting. If you're assigned the same address, disconnect for a few minutes and then reconncect.
