The Device Status for the Wireless shows MAC Address
00-00-00-00-00-00. In addition the WLAN light not flashing. I have rebooted, updated firmware and all the normal troubleshooting. I'm thinking there is a problem with the router. My DI 624 worked fine. I'm upgrading!

Connect a computer to one of the Belkin's "LAN" ports with an Ethernet cable.Open a Web browser and enter "192.168.2.1" into the address bar. Press "Enter."Click "Login," then click "Submit."Make a note of the WLAN MAC address on the Status page.Click "Wireless Bridging" under the "Wireless" category.Click to check the two boxes "Enable wireless bridging" and "Enable only specific access points to connect."Type the MAC address of the
Belkin router and the MAC addresses of the other wireless routers or
access points that are participating in the bridged WDS network. If
using Belkin devices, repeat the previous steps to obtain the WLAN MAC
addresses, otherwise refer to the owner's manual of the wireless device
to find the WLAN MAC Address.Click "Apply Changes" to save the settings.
The MAC address filtering is configured in the Wireless Settings - Wireless Card Access List then tick Turn on Access List - then click on Setup Access List and then add the device name and its MAC address. Eg My Laptop 00:19:4c:24:2b:71 Then click Add and continue adding each device and MAC address - when finished then click Apply and log out.
First of all, two wireless devices cannot have the same WLAN MAC address. Its like a fingerprint. In this rare case, as you do have it that manner. You can TRY to connect both routers using wireless bridging and check the MAC address (if different) of the router on the DHCP client list. If its the same, this feature will not work. With this. if we confirm its an issue with WLAN MAC address, as it can also be a printing mistake. You can go ahead and request for a replacement from US Robotics and bring this to their notice. Moreover, its not possible to spoof or clone the MAC address present of the network adapter of a router. Thanks and regards, Arvind
Try this: 1. Click Start of windows logo. 2. Click run>Type cmd>Type ipconfig /all. 3. Find the MAC address/Physical address (like 00:00:00:00...) which is connected to the modem. 4. Go to wireless router settings (192.168.1.1) 5. Go to MAC address tab, copy your MAC address of your network. 6. Before that, go to home page and choose Dynamic IP (if this same to before, leave it.)
mac is the address in hex of a network card. To get the mac of a network card: go to command line (windows machine) and type the command ipconfig /all. The mac address is the physical address. It will be in the format of 00-00-00-00-00-00, where the 00's are letters and numbers (hex 0-F) To use this you would take the mac address from your wireless card of your computer and enter this number into the mac address filter table of your router. The idea here is when a computer tries to connect to your router, it looks at the table, if the address in not in the table, no connection. Please remember devices only understand what you give them so a typo is not your device....
Are you trying to setup both access point to repeat the signal of the router?
The correct way to setup the AP's as repeater is to access the setup page of your router go to status and go to the wireless subtab, check what is the MAC address that is what your suppose to configure on the AP's not the LAN MAC address which is on the local networks subtab on status.
Access the setup page of the AP's and go to AP Mode, make sure that you choose the repeater and copy down the Wireless MAC address you obtained from the wireless router. To enable roaming, meaning your wireless computer/device will connect to the AP/router closest to its location, change the wireless channel on all three device for example WRT54G will be on channel 1, 1st AP as repeater on Channel 6 and the last AP to Channel 11 but the other settings must be the same(Wireless name(SSID) and Wireless Security).
Note: Setting up an AP as repeater to repeat or extend the signal of another AP that is set to repeater is not recommended since the signal will deteriorate due to the number of hops the packets will be sent.
Hope this will help you setting up those WAP's which for me is quite useful since you can set it up to act as a repeater, AP client and a bridge to a WRT54G router.
12 Type admin in the User Name field
Leave the Password blank
Click OK Home > Wizard The Home>Wizard screen will appear. Please refer to the Quick Installation Guide for more information regarding the Setup Wizard. . These buttons appear on most of the configuration screens in this section. Please click on the appropriate button at the bottom of each screen after you have made a configuration change. . . .13 Using the Configuration Menu (continued) Home > Wireless Service Set Identifier (SSID) is the name designated for a specific wireless local area network (WLAN). The SSID’s factory default setting is default. The SSID can be easily changed to connect to an existing wireless network or to establish a new wireless network. SSID- Channel- 6 is the default channel. All devices on the network must share the same channel. (Note: The wireless adapters will automatically scan and match the wireless setting.) WEP- Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a wireless security protocol for Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN). WEP provides security by encrypting the data that is sent over the WLAN. Select Enabled or Disabled. Disabled is the default setting. (Note: If you enable encryption on the DI-624 make sure to also enable encryption on all the wireless clients or wireless connection will not be established.) WEP Encryption- Select the level of encryption desired: 64-bit, or 128-bit. Key Type- Select HEX or ASCII. Keys 1-4- Input up to 4 WEP keys; select the one you wish to use.14 Using the Configuration Menu (continued) Home > WAN > Dynamic IP Address DI-754 Dynamic IP Address- Choose Dynamic IP Address to obtain IP Address information automatically from your ISP. Select this option if your ISP does not give you any IP numbers to use. This option is commonly used for Cable modem services. Host Name- The Host Name is optional but may be required by some ISPs. The default host name is the device name of the Router and may be changed. MAC Address- The default MAC Address is set to the WAN’s physical interface MAC address on the Broadband Router. It is not recommended that you change the default MAC address unless required by your ISP. Clone MAC Address- The default MAC address is set to the WAN’s physical interface MAC address on the Broadband Router. You can use the "Clone MAC Address" button to copy the MAC address of the Ethernet Card installed by your ISP and replace the WAN MAC address with the MAC address of the router. It is not recommended that you change the default MAC address unless required by your ISP. Enter a DNS Address if you do not wish to use the one provided by your ISP. Primary/ Secondary DNS Address- MTU- Enter an MTU value only if required by your ISP. Otherwise, leave it at the default setting.15 Home > WAN > Static IP Address Static IP Address- Choose Static IP Address if all WAN IP information is provided to you by your ISP. You will need to enter in the IP address, subnet mask, gateway address, and DNS address(es) provided to you by your ISP. Each IP address entered in the fields must be in the appropriate IP form, which are four octets separated by a dot (x.x.x.x). The Router will not accept the IP address if it is not in this format. IP Address- Input the public IP Address provided by your ISP. Subnet Mask- Input your Subnet mask. (All devices in the network must have the same subnet mask.) ISP Gateway Address- Input the public IP address of the ISP to which you are connecting. Primary DNS Address- Input the primary DNS (Domain Name Server) IP address provided by your ISP. Secondary DNS Address- This is optional. Enter an MTU value only if required by your ISP. Otherwise, leave it at the default setting.
The MAC address is listed on the label located on the bottom of the router, below the serial number.
The LAN/Wireless and WAN MAC address can be obtained by logging into the web-based configuration of the wireless router. Follow the steps below for this method.
Step 1 Open a web browser and type the IP address of the wireless router in the address bar (default is 192.168.0.1). Press Enter.
Step 2 The default username is admin (all lower case) and the default password is blank (nothing). Click OK.
Step 3 Click the Status tab and then click Device Info to the left.
This page will list the WAN, LAN, and Wireless MAC address.
