Region : Argentina

Hardware Version : V3

Firmware Version : 3.0.0 Build 120524 Rel.05221

ISP :


Hey people,
I bought TP-Link W8961nd considering it got mac spoofing but I have found that it is not there !
"Help" section in routers' s firmware clearing says it got mac spoofing in "Interface setup > internet > mac spoofing " ,see screenshot below


But it is nowhere to be found , I am hovering into all the available options on the firmware for the last 30 minutes!

Here is screenie ( there is nothing below "multicast" , according to the "Help" page , it must have to be there!)


Except this small niggle (which is a big one for me ! Since router gonna be useless if I couldn't spoof mac address ) router seems perfect !

Please help me out , I wanna get assigned new isp ip address to my brand new tp link router ! But I couldn't because of this

Thanks !

Hi, to get assigned new isp ip address to brand new tp link router, do you get some information from the new ISP, such as username, password, VPI, VCI and connection type?
If you have got these information, you can do Quick Start settings to set it up without configuring MAC spoofing.

Yup, I have everything! But I still need mac spoofing because my isp had bind my account to that mac address only.

Yep, right. Maybe V3 does not support mac spoofing since you cannot find it on the modem.
You may exchange V3 to V2 for a try. Or you can contact with TP-Link support to double check which model can support mac spoofing.

Come on ! I bought it because it supports mac spoofing. Even it is mentioned in help page about "mac spoofing" . Exchanging is extra hassle that I don't want!

Seriously, why did they removed mac spoofing even though it is newer version ! They should have added new features instead of removing some !

Can you spoof mac through telnet ?

Hi, ChairmanSaab.
I had the same problem as you before. After contacting TP-LINK support, they told me that V3 does not support mac spoofing.
What a pity.
