If the access point/router is still unable to obtain an IP address from the ISP, the problem
might be one of the following:
•Your ISP might require a login program. Ask your ISP whether they require PPP over
Ethernet (PPPoE) or some other type of login.
•If your ISP requires a login, the login name and password might be set incorrectly.
•Your ISP might check for your computer’s host name. Assign the computer host
name of your ISP account as the account name (see Router mode: Manually set up
the access point/router Internet connection on page 40).
•If your ISP allows only one Ethernet MAC address to connect to Internet and checks

-Inform your ISP that you bought a new network device and ask them to use the
access point/router’s MAC address.
-Configure the access point/router to clone your registered computer’s MAC
