You may need to clone your MAC address, a unique address is for each device connected to a network. Some internet service provider (ISP) modems quit working if the MAC address of the device connected to its Ethernet or LAN jack (i.e., your computer) changes from the one used when it was first set up. So when you hook up a new router to share the connection, you run into the problem you have.

Cloning the MAC address in the router sets it to the same address as the device connected to its number 1 wired port. Since you didn't give the brand and model of your router I can't give you specific steps or links to follow for the process. But it's typically very simple. From the computer originally used to set up your modem, access the router's setup pages. On the appropriate page, pick "clone MAC address" from a menu or click on a button. You can search for "<insert your brand of router here> cloning MAC address" and find many sites with how-to information. A good starting point is always the router manufacturer's site, where there is probably already an answer in their support FAQ section.

Once the router MAC address has been cloned, you should have your Internet access back and will be able to use the wireless access.

Most Cable Internet Service Providers (ISPs) use Media Access Control (MAC) Address authentication to establish Internet connection for end-users. MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to the network adapter/s of the computer.
To set up your Linksys router to work with a Cable ISP, you have to enable the MAC Clone feature of the router. MAC Cloning is a procedure which enables a router to copy the MAC address of the computer that's registered with the ISP.
To setup a Linksys router with Cable connection you need to perform four steps using the computer that's been registered with the ISP:
i. Verifying Internet Connection
ii. Connecting Devices Together
iii. Checking the Router's LEDs
iv. Configuring a Linksys Router for a Cable Internet Connection

Need to mate my rotor with my cable internet


You need to get to the web configuration page of your router and clone the MAC address of your modem. It's because cable internet providers uses MAC address of a device to be able to connect to their server.

You can follow this manual to access the web configuration tool and look for the topic MAC Cloning Address.

http://downloads.linksysbycisco.com/downloads/WRT54GL-EU_11_UG_A-WEB.pdf

If in some case, your internet didn't work after connecting the router and after cloning the MAC address of your modem. Try to turn off your modem and disconnect everything from there, turn off your router as well and disconnect everything. Wait for 1 minute and plug the power cord back to your cable modem and plug the ethernet cable. Wait for 1 minute, turn reconnect everything to your router to the modem, and Clone the MAC address again.

Hope this helps.

I have a Netwave Base G4 wireless router w/ 4- port switch,trying to network two computers via cable modem using local ports,modem and router not communicating


You need to change the LAN IP address of your router. Open the router's admin through http://192.168.1.1 and look for router's IP address or Local IP Address. Change it to 192.168.10.1 and save the settings. Reboot the router after that. If you are on cable internet , you need to do MAC Cloning. Access the router's admin page and look for MAC Clone settings. Enable and clone the PC's Mac Address. Save the settings and power cycle the router and the modem after that.

If you are on Cable Internet, you need to do MAC Cloning. Open the router's Setup Page through http://192.168.1.1 then look for Mac Address Clone sub-tab under the the SETUP tab. Enable it and click on Clone My PC's MAC then click on Save Settings. You need to power cycle the device now. Unplug the power to the router and the modem. Wait for 30 seconds. Power on the modem first and wait for the lights to go solid, then power on the router. You should be good to go.

MAC address


Why do you want to clone the router's MAC address?

If you want the router's MAC address, go to the Admin (I believe it is) page.
That button is for cloning your Desktop or Laptop computer's MAC address, and unless you are being instructed to, there is no need to.

MAC address cloning


Hi killer - MAC (Media Access Control) cloning is used to clone your MAC address.
Some ISPs (most notably MediaOne) use your NIC's MAC address to authenticate your service. When you change the computer that you have connected to your cable modem service, you usually have to call up Tech Support and give them the MAC address of the NIC in the new machine. Since hardware routers have the equivalent of a NIC on their WAN port in order to connect to your cable modem, you would have to do the same thing if you're installing a router.
Recently, however, some ISPs have started to recognize the MAC addresses of popular routers and disconnect service if a router is detected. Fortunately, many router manufacturers are including the capability to either set the router WAN port MAC address to anything you want, or copy it from a computer connected to the router LAN side. You can check the Router comparison chart under "Mac addr. clone" to see which routers support this feature. Then consult the router's documentation for directions on using the feature.
So basically, it's used to fool ISPs into thinking there isn't a router. If the router has the same MAC address as either your NIC card or your modem the ISP won't detect and service won't be interrupted. Most ISPs don't do this so iy's rarely needed.
If this answers your question PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.
