How do I change the public ip address? I've tried almost everything, When I had a linksys router all I had to do was change the mac address and ipconfig/release ipconfig/renew My parents have fios too and I can change the public ip address anytime I want on their computer, but not mine.

What is the brand, model, and hardware version of the FIOS router you have?

General rules,  

 

Make sure after you release the IP address, that you immediately disconnect the router, and leave it disconnected for at least 5 minutes.  If you release and renew too fast, then it will grab the same ip address.

 

you have to give it time for that IP to go back into the pool
