Specify the MAC Address of WAN Interface

This article shows how to specify the MAC address of the WAN Interface on Vigor Router. This is a workaround if your ISP restricts Internet access to their modems by recognizing the MAC addresses, or if you are in a network where the Network Administrator requires registering the MAC address first for a device to get Internet access, which is quite common in dormitories.

1. To change the MAC address of the WAN interface, go to WAN >> Internet Access, click Details Page of the WAN you are going to configure.
