CGN is something your ISP does, not something you can change. And the ISP often doesn't have a choice because they don't have enough IPv4 addresses to give every customer a separate one. So they have to make customers share addresses through the use of CGN. You might be able to convince your ISP to give you your own public address, but you probably would ...

I would expect you to need to tell the new router what IP address it should use on the ISP side of the router, and possibly also which DNS server or servers it should use. You may also need to make sure it handles local IPv6 addresses, and may need to tell it which local IPv6 addresses it should allow connections for. Your problem looks like that router ...
