Done that on the Netgear router!
Also battery out BB,
And shut down and restarted Freebox (IsP) modem.
After much trying I got to "...could not associate BB with network" despite the BB being able to see the router. I then noticed that there were 2
MAC addresses given on the BB 1=AP and 1=Device. I had used the AP address - wrong one!
So I changed the MAC address to the correct one and I will presume that the BB and the router now get associated and the BB moves on gamely to the next hurdle. Now I get the "cannot assign IP address" error.
The routers QOS setting gives the BB Mac address priority.
I can access the control panel of the Freebox. I contacted Free(box) who said it is not the Freebox settings. (?) but I changed the channel to the same as the BB. idem.
I think it is now a router/modem problem and I do not see this covered in any forum despite that the problem crops up all the time!
I also have an HP media smart server which necessitates certain ports assigned to certain IP¨addresses on the Freebox but I doubt if this has anything to do with it.
This is all very disappointing
as most devices Laptops, iPhones
Wii's etc. do not need all these new setting tweeks.
