Change wan IP on pfsense
I have asked my ISP to change my WAN IP but pfsense keeps retrieving the old IP everytime I click on release/renew button in Interfaces.
How do I sort it out?
Does any1 know the answer to my question?

Has the ISP confirmed assigning you a new IP address?
Yes, the modem has a new IP but pfsense keeps retrieveing the old one
How do I configure pfsense to prefer new IPs over old ones?

You're getting the IP your ISP assigns you. Your firewall has no control over what IP it receives, it uses what the ISP tells it to use. If you change your WAN NIC's MAC, you might get a new IP, or you might lock yourself out entirely and have to revert that change and reboot to get your original MAC back, if your ISP or modem restricts you to a specific single MAC.
