How to find WAN MAC address

Model : TD-W8961ND

Hardware Version : V3

Firmware Version : 3

ISP :

Hello everybody:
I just want a way to find the WAN MAC address of this modem router. I want to replace this modem router with a separate adsl modem and router, but my ISP has registered the MAC address of this device and will not allow me to change it. If I know the MAC address then I can use MAC spoofing on the new router and my problem will be solved. I could not find the WAN MAC address on the web interface. I tried to play with telnet commands but that did not help either. Please any information will be useful.

I don't understand why your ISP cannot help to change it after you use a new device...
On status page of W8961ND, there is MAC address. Or you may find it on the bottom of device itself.

I don't understand either :(.
I thought that is the LAN side MAC address not the WAN one..? Or is the the same MAC address for both?

I thought that MAC address which is printed on the bottom of the device is LAN MAC address not the WAN one. Or are they the same?

Did you login web interface of W8961ND? MAC addresses on Status page and on its bottom are the same or different?
