I have an NTL connection and want to share it over the house so I bought an origo BBR-1400 router. The internet works fine when the router is connected to the main computers modem but not when the router is connected to the broadband modem. (similar problem in pc advisor issue 98 p.146 but not wireless networking). I called NTL and asked if I could register the new MAC but they said they cant do that. Also the clone feature does not seem to work. Please help me!
I have followed those guide lines, what i mean is that my aim is to have internet around the house while the main computer is off, which you probably know. When I attach the cable modem to the router this won't happen. When I try to clone the MAC address, the web page refreshes and the old MAC address remains in the boxes and when I look at the MAC details, they still show the old MAC address? any clearer? I hope so!
Oh and by the way, the MAC address on the bottom of the cable modem is 00-D0-59-F7-17 and so is the MAC address registered on my NTL details, but the MAC address shown using ipconfig /all is 00-D0-59-F7-55-16. Not sure if this is a problem or if it helps.
