There should be a file containing info about your network card. So if you vi
the file and change the Mac to the one you need, and reboot, then you should
get the new ip. My isp is like yours, dhcp but based on mac address. I can't
remember the location of file containing the network card configuration

I tried the resetting for 24 hours (unplugging it from power), tried
to have my isp give me different modem configuration files, no go, my
modem just liked my mac, after following the instructions given I was
able to acquire a new ip address, so far, no harm done.
