router using PC MAC address

  iqs 20:16 11 Sep 2009


I have a Netgear router WPN824v2 and a virgin media modem.

Over a year a go Virgin media did an upgrade of their equipment,so I was told.

After the upgraded,the only way to configure my router to connect to the modem/internet was to use the MAC address of the PC's NIC.The routers own MAC would not work.
I have been told I'm "spoofing the router/modem"

I could not use the Netgear supplied setup disc,it was a manual install.

The router works well using this MAC,but I'm just curious why I have to use the incorrect settings.
