Region : India

Model : TL-WA5210G

Hardware Version : V2

Firmware Version :

ISP :


I have one TP-Link WA5210G and the AP that my ISP provides me is dead and my ISP and my ISP is having MAC binding feature,the MAC was registered is of my Dead Router so i Bought a 5210G without the MAC of the my old router i am not able to browse the net.

I am using Operation mode Standard AP.And it doesn't have the MAC clone option and i cannot change the mode to AP Client router because the connection i have is of multiple IP address.So if there is MAC address clone in Standard AP mode.It should be great.That can clone the MAC of my wireless port(wifi0).

Standard AP/Client/repeter/bridge modes have no MAC clone because MAC clone is meaningless in these modes.

Only NAT router products (router mode/AP client router mode) need this MAC clone function.

I think you are not understanding what i am saying,I will tell you it in brief.I have many IP registered in one MAC,so i need MAC address clone in AP mode.

Your description doesn't make any sense to me neither..

In your picture how can the TL-WA5210G be working in AP mode? It should client mode...What are you trying to do?

The WA5210G is in client mode if you see the diagram correctly you will see that there is WISP router in the right side of the picture.I am connected to my AP.

What you are trying to achieve is to share the legal IP offered by the WISP to several PCs. But the IP is bound to one MAC, so you need MAC clone.

You need to use AP client router mode (or call Wisp client mode/WISP client router mode)... That is what you need.

AP/CLient/bridge/repeater modes are all layer 2 modes, they don't care about MAC or IP address because their job is to transfer frames like a switch. You won't see MAC clone function on a switch.
AP router mode and AP client router mode (WISP client mode) are NAT ROUTER logically. Their job is to share WAN IP to LAN hosts based on NAT. Particularly the WAN interface of Wisp client router mode is a wireless logical interface.

I have tried this command on my TP-Link Router but it won't work

ifconfig wifi0 down
ifconfig wifi0 hw ether 11:22:33:44:55:66
ifconfig wifi0 up

The TP-Link has a command line interference at

Username: osteam
Password: 5up

I have tried this but it won't change the MAC address as the UBNT devices allow.
If TP-Link allow Dropbear SSH in their devices so i could execute a command at TP-Link startup that i would change the MAC address of the router.

Whether using CLI or web interface, it is meaningless to do MAC clone on client mode. And now that you have found that the CLI doesn't work, so leave it alone.

Have you tried AP Client router mode? As we discuss above, you should use AP client router mode.

But AP Client router mode is useless because i am having multiple IP.

Your requirements cannot be full filled. It is not the AP(client mode) that should handle the IP-MAC relationship because the AP is transparent to the DHCP server of WISP. Just like we never ask a pure switch to handle IP-MAC relationship.
