All is well now except for my isp claiming they cant change my ip or lift my blacklisting.
Your ISP is feeding you a static IP? Without you paying a premium for it?
That's really dumb on their part. Most ISP's will serve you a dynamic/public IP with a certain lease time, which is usually no more than a few weeks
Now if your modem was compromised on the firmware level, they might be sending you a new one to correct that, but a new MAC address won't get served a
new IP if they are still sending you a static IP.
That's very strange indeed.
ETA: Blacklisting your MAC would serve it no IP at all, as opposed to a static one. So what they told you was true. Your modem was probably
compromised and that's why they couldn't change it and opted to send you a new modem.
