Re: MAC Encapsulated Routing

regarding the MAC address change to that of the isp supplied modem, thats no issue as the isp usually allows a MAC change over phone so i need to call them up and give them new MAC of new device and they will authorize it.

Re: MAC Encapsulated Routing

Re: MAC Encapsulated Routing

i tried all that but doesnt work coz if the main router is not set to MER then it just wont connect to ISP, regarding the NAT that can easily be solved using NAT softwares etc which is the least of my concerns. main thing is the router needs to be in MER mode then only will it connect to server and ...

MAC Encapsulated Routing

just wanted to check if routertech firmware is capable of doing MAC Encapsulated Routing (MER) as ADSL broadband connections in India using reliance broadband use this rather than plain PPPoE or bridged connections and routers with MER only work, mostly the router provided by them only work for thei...

Re dhcp lease time, Yes, I have seen that the static lan clients time over-rides the default time - the workaround is to remove the machine from the static lan clients allocation (which doesn't make much sense in half-bridge).

There's a fundamental issue in half-bridge, before it gets and can give the WAN IP the modem will give a local IP. There's no easy way for the modem to tell the router the IP needs to change, so the usual way is to set a short lease time (about 60 secs) in the Modem GUI, then the router will be for...
