In the routers web interface, click on login (password would be either blank or smcadmin) -> Advanced setup -> click on WAN -> Dynamic IP address -> click on clone MAC address and save the settings.

I have set up this device as an AP and connected it to a adsl router, which also has another pc connected to it. I can connect my laptop to the AP and can even access the router, but am unable to browse...

Search in google about how to set up a DHCP server for your router and clone the modem's MAC address, most routers have this option, the thing is some ISPs limit the use of internet to only one machine, by cloning the modem's MAC address in your router you'll make the ISP believe there's only one machine connected to the Internet. By setting up a DHCP server in your router you'll use only one IP to connect all machines using a private network, that should solve your problems. Try both alternatives, and see which one works.
Please check the legal limitations of this procedure for your country or state and have a nice day! ;)

Setting up Mac Filtering on your Wireless Router

If you have any questions on which network security to use, please see my tip, about wireless network security, also see, a word on passwords.
Note: these instructions are generalized for most common routers, if you are having trouble with your router, please post a question providing your routers model and what you are trying to set up, thank you.

First you must log into your router to change the settings. To do this, you need to user your web browser and type in the IP address of your router in the address bar like this: Note, the numbers I used in the example are the most common default IP address for routers, look in the user manual for your router for your IP address, if it is 67.73.736.93 for example (I dont think any routers use that but its an example) then you would use: http://67.73.736.93/
Also please use the user manual for your router for information on how to change your routers default administrator password, this will prevent others from changing your network settings.
Now you will be at the main page for your router. There should be a column on the left or at the top of the page with options.
Find and click on "Mac filtering" or "Mac address control"
There will be a column labeled Mac addresses, and a set of options including "allow" or "deny", you want to select "allow", this will deny connections that are not on the list, and allow connections that are on your list, the "deny" option does the opposite.
Now you need to obtain the Mac address of any computers or devices you want to access your network.
For PC: click start, run, type "cmd", hit enter, this will open up command line. it should say something like "c:/" with a black background. type "ipconfig /all" A lot of text will come up, scroll through and find a device with the word wireless or wifi in its name, this is your wireless adapter. Below that will be a line that says either "Mac address" or "physical address" followed by your mac address, that will look like this: 00:K3:9D:93:J3:9H (for example only, basically its six sets of 2 characters separated by :'s) Write this down
For Mac: go to applications, utilities, terminal. type "ifconfig" A lot of text will come up, scroll through and find a device with the word wireless or wifi in its name, this is your wireless adapter. Below that will be a line that says either "Mac address" or "physical address" followed by your mac address, that will look like this: 00:K3:9D:93:J3:9H (for example only, basically its six sets of 2 characters separated by :'s) Write this down
Do this with all the computers you want to access the internet, then you will have a list of Mac addresses. Go back to your router setup page, and enter them all into the settings. when you click "done" or "apply changes" the router will restart.
Congratulations, you're done!!!

With Direct cable ,internet connection can able to get.Through DLINK router and adapter cann't get the connection.previously it was it showing limited access or low connectivity.

This is most likely due to the still having the Media Access Control (MAC) address of the device that was previously connected the modem in NVRAM.
In order to clear this old MAC address, the easiest thing to do is to unplug the power cable from the modem for 15 to 20 minutes. This allows the NVRAM in the modem to clear and makes it able to accept the new MAC address of the router.

After the modem has been unplugged from the power for 15 to 20 minutes, plug the Ethernet cable of the router into the modem and plug the power cord back in to the modem. After the modem syncs back up to the network, it should add the MAC address of the WRT54GL router to its NVRAM and assign it an IP address. This should allow the router to connect your systems to the Internet.

Please be sure to rate my answer as a 3 or 4 thumbs up if you found it helpful. The 1 and 2 thumbs-up are like saying "didn't really address the problem" and "wasn't the best solution"

To configure the D-Link router, you will next need to open a web browser and type http://www.
You should see the administration screen of the D-link router. type in admin and leave the password filed blank.
A setup wizard should appear, prompting you to first change the router’s password. Pick something you can remember.
You will next have to setup a time zone, you will then be given option as to how the router will handle IP address on the network. Most users will opt for the Dynamic option, which means the router will act as a DHCP server and supply all computers on the network with an IP address. If you select DHCP, you will need to Clone the IP address of the machine your ISP has already had contact with. For instance, if your ISP has been giving IP address to a certain computer before you put the router between them, you will need to clone the MAC address of that machine.

I Think you ISP must be DSL.
Your internet is working with the old router when it is in bridge mode.
Check the IP address of your computer when it is connected directly to the modem and NOT in the bridge mode. Suppose the IP address is 192.168.X.Y. After that connect your computer to the ethernet port of the router. DO NOT connect the modem to the router. check the IP address of the computer again. Suppose the IP address of the computer is 192.168.A.B. Now make sure that both the IP addresses are not in the same range that means X is NOT equal to A. If they are same, then open the set up interface of your router and change the Local IP address of the router. that will help.

ADSL ISP provides same address for IP and Gateway

Can you manually change the WAN IP on the router?  If so, give it an IP like and set the gateway address to  If it asks for a subnet mask, give it
If she has a Linksys router, you may need to change the operating "MODE" on it.  A lot of Linksys routers have 2 modes of operation---Router mode and Gateway mode.  For her configuration, make sure the Linksys is in Gateway mode.  This will fix the NAT problem.

TP-LINK TL-WR340G, No internet connection

Look for the MAC address clone feature on the router. If the router does not ahve the auto clone MAC feature, you'll need to manually input the MAC address of your computer.

To get the MAC address or Physical address of the computer do this
Click start>run>type in "cmd" and press okay (without the " ").
On the Command prompt type in ipconfig/all and then press enter, look for physical address.
Then input that on the MAC clone feature of the computer to your router and then power cycle everything (turn everything off and then turn on modem first-then router-then computer).

Ntl:Home Compatibility

When you say the networking is fine, I assume that you can connect all wireless devices together and access the router menu on IP (refer page 23)

Is it possible that when you connect the router to the modem that both are trying to assign an IP to the other?

My router is set to get it's WAN IP from the modem (it's a d-link though)

refer to the manual on page 28- try setting the WAN/internet setting to dynamic. You should leave the host name blank and not clone the MAC address.


Post back results and I will try to assist further if required

Computer found router before why doesn't it now?

Download Network Magic (no need to buy, free one will work) once installed look at your network map, you should see your router click on it and note the IP address. Type this address into your browser.
