I change my routers mac address regularly to change IPs so I can log into my different paypal accounts with worrying about getting them linked.
My IP is dynamic, but has a long lease so doesn't change every time I reset modem. I found out I could log into my routers admin panel and change the mac address there, and then after resetting the router and modem, the IP would be different.
But now when I change my mac address, and reset modem/router, the computer connects, but I can only access the routers default gateway, not the internet. I can now only access it through the mac addresses I've used in the past. I just cloned my mac address the first time, and then changed the last digits slightly to get a different IP, but this doesn't work now.
I'm with Virgin Media. Anybody know what the problem is?
