I have restarted ONT 4 times but same IP, why? How can I have different IP each time I restart ONT.

You can't. Unless you are on a static IP which needs to be paid for separately, the ISP allots IPs dynamically which may or may not change when you restart the ont.

@Sushubh what you mean is a unique public IP and not a private IP. There are simply too many connected devices for anyone to be assigned a permanent IP, so everyone just gets whatever is available at that moment from a pool. The solution was supposed to be ip6 addresses but we have been hearing that for several years now.
