    I have a Gingerbread (CM7) phone that enables me to change the IP address with which the phone connects to the router, but on my newer phone (stock Jellybean, 4.2.2), I have the same option under wifi settings, but I cannot change it as it's greyed out. Is there anything I can do to be able to change the IP address? (without having to root the phone)

    you should be able to manually assign your preferred IP address even without root. maybe your router is assigning a static IP to your phone, so you can't change it?

    Thanks for the answer. Where can I assign the IP? The router assigns IPs on a "first come, first served" basis, I have no ability to set the IP from within the router's settings.
    I forgot to mention earlier that the "greyed out" option is in Settings > Wi-Fi > Menu Button > Advanced Settings, it's right under MAC address. And I was wrong, it's not grayed out, it allows me to select it, but no edit dialogue pops up.
