Hey yarduk
Changing your IP is not an easy task as they are what we call "sticky" IP's.  You had the right idea by attempting a IP/PPP reset ad a power cycle, but if those didn't do it then it wont change.  The only other way to attempt to change would be to unplug your equipment until the lease expires, which could be anywhere from 1-7 days, and then reconnect it after that and hope that another device grabbed your IP instead.
