You can't change a MAC address. It is a burnt in address put in by the manufacturer of the router. There are ways to spoof an address or use the MAC address of your PC when accessing the Internet. You can change your IP address if that is what you are trying to do.I want to change the - thomson.jpg

How to setup a rca thomson digital broadband to a tm router


You have to reboot your modem anytime you connect a new device to it, this is what is great about routers! They act as the reference device to your modem since the modem can only "pair" with 1 mac address at a time, this allows you to connect and disconnect devices to your internet without having to reboot your modem and to also have multiple device use the same internet service at the same time.
Unplug the power to your modem and just follow the directions that came with your router on how to wire it to your modem and set it up. Once you are done plug your modem back into power and you should be up and running.

My comp.says network error,thomson tg585v8,i cant access my comp.


Check your network settings
Start, control panel, networking and sharing center. Click on your connection, properties. Click on TCP/IPv4 and TCP/IPv6 and click on properties. Make sure the settings say to obtain IP address automatically and also for DNS, then reboot the modem and computer.

You did not specify if you are using a router.

How can i get nat type open i always have nat type strict. my Router is a thomson tg585v8


I believe certain routers are certain NAT types. If there is not an option to change NAT type on the web interface for your router, then it is what it is.

Hope that helps

I have no problem in the conections to the net, but i have used all the possible user names and passwords but i still can not inter thomson gateway . i use tg585v8-router


Reset the router and start the configuration from the begining. There's no need to "crack" the password or user name if you physically have the device.
Make sure you write down and save the password after you change it from its default or you will have to do this over again.

Does anyone know how to Do MAC address filtering on Thomson TG782T router?


1st. Have a look at the wireless card that is inserted in your computer, check the label it, will have the MAC address printed on the label. If the wireless card is inside the laptop then have a look at the properties of the wireless card - it should give the MAC address of the wireless card.

2nd. Connect a LAN cable to the wireless router and enter the router's configuration URL address and go to the wireless configuration - then click on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless card.

The router will only allow the MAC addresses that are in this table to connect to the router.

For further information on securing your wireless network, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

I have two routers Netgear DG834Gv3 and Thomson SpeedTouch TG585v7. I want to create a wireless bridge between these two routers, so that I can have internet on the Netgear router. The main router/Access...


I am sorry but I am not so familiar with the Thomson Device but I can give you a clue on how to set it up....you can skip the security settings first just make sure they work then you can set it later...Check it out!

- Thomson as "Master Router" connected to modem set up as follows
-- 192.168.1.1
-- Set up wireless access point as you normally would in Wireless Settings, muine are "MY_SSID",Channel 2,b+g mode,
64-bit WEP with hex key (rather than pass phrase)
--- Enter any laptop wifi MAC addresses in the "Client Access List" here to allow them and make sure it's set to restrict
them
-- Set DHCP range to 192.168.1.10 to 192.168.1.127 (my preference) in "Lan Settings"
-- go to Wireless Bridging and Repeating menu option
--- Set "Enable Wireless Repeating Function"
--- Set as "Wireless Base Station"
--- DO NOT check the "Disable Wireless Client Association" if you want to be able to use laptop wifi
--- Enter the mac address of your "Slave Router" here
Make sure all of the above is applied and has stuck, i had a habit of setting some things then clicking to a sub-menu
before clicking apply, always scroll down and click apply before drilling into sub options!

DG834G V3 : "Slave Router"
-- Get latest firmware as earlier v3 firmware doesnt support WDS
-- 192.168.1.2
-- Enable Wireless Settings and set to exact same as "Master Router" including 64 bit WEP key and MAC access list for
laptops etc
-- Disable DHCP in Basic Setup (I think)
-- "Advanced Wireless Settings" menu option
--- "Enable Bridging and Repeating"
--- Select the "Wireless Bridge With Client Association" (or similar) option
--- Enter the "Master Router" MAC address here
Again, double check everything has stuck, that the "normal" wireless settings for both routers are identical and reboot
both (in either order worked for me but booting the Master first is probably best practise)
GOOD LUCK!!!
I
