Need help with WAN IP

Hello, I was wondering if I could change my WAN IP somehow.

When I use my modem without the router, I get certain #s (24.193.x.x) that are COMPLETELY different from the #s(74.72.x.x) that I get when I am using my router.
Now, I am using tm502 (modem) and Linksys router with ddwrtv23 installed.
Since they are different, I'm guessing that I can change it, but when I do edit the values (while using router) to match the #s that I get while not using the router, my internet stops working.
Can somebody help please? Thank you.

The WAN IPs are typically assigned by the Internet Provider. As long as you're getting Internet access in the first place, I wouldn't worry about it.
