    Just stick a paperclip in the reset hole on the back of the device... hold it for 30 seconds.

    That does not send the release command to the DHCP servers, So the server will still still hold that IP Address until the lease expireses. The lease on my ip address is 2 weeks so i would would have to keep my router turned of for 15 days to get a new ip address

    Then ask your ISP tech support.
