    I can't connect to WISP using WRT54GS v2.0 in client mode!
    Wireless ISP use MAC filtering, and I gave them wrt router MAC address (is it wrong???). WISP also has DHCP server.
    My SSID is same as WISP's.
    I'm using the same WRT to connect to the other WISP without MAC filtering, but with WPA encryption and everything works fine.

    Firmware on WRT: Alchemy-6.0-RC5a v3.01.3.8sv

    My WRT:
    Status -> Router -> MAC Address -> xx:xx:xx:C8:7E:9E
    Status -> Local Network -> MAC Address -> xx:xx:xx:C8:7E:9D
    Status -> Wireless -> MAC Address -> xx:xx:xx:C8:7E:9F

    ISP has xx:xx:xx:C8:7E:9E

    WRT can associate with ISP AP, but he can't get IP address from his DHCP server.

    Sveasoft Achemy does not pass DHCP not DNS through NAT, eaven if you set the WRT54G as an OSPF router. You should use WDS instead, You would need a DHCP relay setup on the LAN connected to the WRT54G in client mode. You can enable the DHCP client on the WRT54G, but you have to have all LAN Clients on a different subnet.

    I can't connect only to this ISP. I think it's a problem with his MAC filter and my MAC addresses. I'm using same WRT to connect to another ISP with no problem. Also I can connect to my another WRT in AP mode:


    My computer is hardwired with WRT client through LAN port!

    I tried satori 4.0GS on client bridge mode but the Acces point i'm connecting to needs two MAC addresses: wireless MAC of WRT in client bridge mode(satori) and MAC address of my LAN card attached to WRT (client). Only then everything works OK.
    ISP use just one MAC address.
    Any sugestion?
