Mac address cloning / BT Home Hub 5

I have Infinity 2 package with BT Home Hub 5.

 

I recently bought Asus AC3200 and would like to use it as a main wired/wireless router in the house.

 

I don't want to have an extra routing hope, so I thought to setup Mac address cloning, so AC3200's broadband interface has the same MAC as BT Home Hub.

 

Is it possible ? 

 

Where can I find MAC address of BT Home Hub 5 broadband interface ?

It's on the Advanced Settings - Home Network - Devices page.

That doesn't give MAC address of a broadband interface, but of internal interfaces (wired and wireless).

It must be the one shown towards the bottom of the Helpdesk page, also shown on the bottom of the HH5.

Re: Mac address cloning / BT Home Hub 5

Are you trying to connect a 2nd router to the phone line at the same time? If so it won't work. If not why are u trying to clone the mac address? You can only have the same Mac address once within the same network. Arp cannot understand multiple devices with the same Mac address. You can only have a mac address known to one device. Multiple IP addresses can map to the same Mac address but you cannot map the same IP address to multiple Mac addresses.

If you are just connecting it on it's own, you don't need to clone the mac address for any reason. Just enter homehub@btbroadband.com as user name and bt as password if required.
