Hi, here is a solution for your problem:
Obtaining your MAC address Your MAC address will normally be on the box or registration card for your computer or individual ethernet card. If you can not find it, please follow the instructions below depending on your operating system. Windows Vista:
Click on Start Button.
Click on All Programs.
Click on Accessories.
Click on System Tools.
Click on System Information.
Click on plus sign in front of Components.
Click on plus sign in front of Network.
Click on Adapter.
Scroll down to your Network Interface Card and it will list the MAC Addresss. (Make sure you do not get the wireless adapter).
WINDOWS NT, 2000, or XP:
Using your mouse, click on the Start Button.
Click on Programs.
Click on Accessories, and then Command Prompt.
Once a small black window appears, type in ipconfig /all (with a space between the g and the /).
Locate the number to the right of Physical Address. This is your MAC address.
After clicking on the Start Button, click on Run.
In the white space of the window, type in the word winipcfg
Click on "OK".
Look under the info for the Ethernet adapter. (Your system may also have a modem.)
The number next to "Adapter Address" is your MAC address.
Try reseating te broadband connection to the router.
It soundslike your router works if it connects to your laptop with a great signal. But its not sending any information through.
Try reseating. if it does not work. you might need to do a fresh reinstall of the router. Usually the broadband connections attach itself to a mac address of a network card. If you recently put a new router the network cards MAC address is different and it might not send signals through. like for me for cable i have the same issue.
Try this let me know how it does. If any problems please let me know.
if you mean you need to obtain a MAC Code from your current isp, this is a code that enablesyou to transfer from one providers broadband to another, the code lasts for 30 days which you need to provide your new ISP with to make a seamless change over
The easiest way is to turn on the mac restriction feature and only allow the macs from the machines that you want to have access.
Since I didn't see the model of router listed, you will need to refer to the manual for exact instructions on enabling that feature.
You can get the mac addresses from the machines that you want to have access to the router in xp by click Start > Run > type cmd.exe and press enter. Then type ipconfig /all and look for the physical address of your adapter. It should be in the format of XX-XX-XX-XX-XX-XX. Once you get that information you can allow it in your router.
