Major issues with n300

I have been running an n300 for 2 months now no issues. All of a sudden I cant get on the Internet on anything connecting to the router. I have try cycling everything to no avail.

Here is where it gets strange. I tryed connecting my cable modem directly to my MacBook and it works fine. Put the router back into the equation and it only works on devices that are hard wired on the router. All my devices are connecting to router just fun but they can't get out to anything.

After spending 2 hours with netgear and time Warner and listening to them play the blame game I still have no solution except the netgear tech saying the cable modem needs to be bridged?

My network is as follows:


Scientific Atlanta modem connected to n300 router.
N300 router connected to dlink dap-1522 n bridge via wifi
N300 router connected to apple tv via netgear powerline
Xbox & ps3 connected to n300 via hardline & switch
iMac and windows pc connected to dap-1522 via hardline
2 iPads, 2 iPhones , and MacBook connected to n300 via wifI


I am hoping to get some help so later today I don't waste more time with tech support. I have a feeling it's an issue with the modem when it's plugged into router maybe a Mac address issue or it got taken out of bridged mode?i

If you have battery included on your modem, removed it when your turn off the unit and let it set for 15min and try again,

There is not a battery backup on this modem.

In that case Mac spoofing.

Use Mac address of your Mac computer and use under basic settings of the router interface

Re: Major issues with n300

Wait why the Mac address of the mac computer? Neither the iMac or the MacBook can access the Internet.


None of the devices can go onto the net except for the 360 & ps3?

Try holding reset button in on modem while unplugging power to SA modem. Your ISP may not be reconizing your router's mac address. reboot router first then try above. If router has use this mac address option enter you macbook's mac and try.

Reason for using Mac spoofing is to fix Mac address issues on routers Mac address not negotiating with Isp
