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.
2. At the lower right of the profile box, select "Specify a MAC Address" and enter the MAC Address, then click OK to save.
For Static or Dynamic IP:
1. Go to WAN >> General Setup >> General Setup, select the WAN you want to change the MAC address and click Edit.
2. Disable Default MAC Address, enter MAC address, click Apply.
