i you are talking about getting a permanent isp (does not change) i guess you should request to your ISP of getting a static IP., 192.168.1.2 is your local area network created by your modem, that will not be change unless you change your modem.

This depends on whether you wish to reset the internal network IP (192.168.0.*), or whether you wish to reset the IP address provided by your ISP. The internal address can be changed by using the command prompt to run ipconfig as the first respodant suggested, but if have a dynamic IP address from your ISP then you need to reboot the router to change it.
