First question is why?
Second one is which RG/modem?
VDSL ones usually can NOT get a new IP address (even though they are listed as dynamic) unless a possible new RG (most have same IP address), port swap (been reported the same IP address).
ADSL modems should be able to get a new IP address by just unplugging/plug in for 30 seconds as most are setup as true dynamic.
Please NO SD stretch-o-vision or 480 SD HD Channels

Can you please explain the problem.
1. There should be no reason to get a new IP address. If you want to be addressed by name you can sign up for free DDNS from dyndns.com. You run a small client on either your PC or router (not on the RG) and it will register your IP to a name (e.g. myhost.homeip.net) which can be used to connect to your network. Setting up incoming connections is a fairly advanced topic.
2. If you have a full implementation of DHCP, such as is found in Linux, it is possible to request a specific IP from the DHCP server, which it may or may not honor. I have no idea if such a request is even possible with the way U-verse works.
3. If you have engaged in some behavior that has gotten your current IP banned by some domains, you probably need to address that issue with their managements.
