Default Changing your IP via Router MAC?

I have a D Link router, and I'm with Rogers Cable. So it's cable to the modem, ethernet from rogers modem to router, ethernet from router to desktop computer.

So what I was able to do, countless times, is simply go to my router settings, MAC, change one letter/number, unplug/plug back in router, then right away power cycle rogers model, 60 seconds later internet is working and I have a new IP address.

Now all of a sudden that doesn't work, I do everything but I have the same IP.

Is there another way of tricking network into thinking I have different MAC so I get new IP?

I don't mean unplugging the model for 24h and hopping I get new IP..

Oh and rogers has dynamic IP, I just don't know why that worked for so many times and now suddenly it doesn't.

It worked for a long time until I moved, to a city 50km away, then it didn't work anymore..

Router had issues too, so I had to change access IP for it.

So is there another way to do it?
