Thanks, the MAC authentication worked but... When I tried connecting to the wireless adapter it wouldn't connect. Also, when trying to renew and release it. It said this,

No operation can be performed on Wireless Network Connection while it has its me
dia disconnected.
An error occurred while releasing interface Loopback Pseudo-Interface 1 : The sy
stem cannot find the file specified.

I dont know if its related but decided to post it and see what u think.

I don't know if its related. But what should I do now?

Your LAN adapter is different to your Wireless adapter, so you got 2 MAC addresses. I haven't come across a wireless connection issue with regards to this MAC cloning option (usually it's the LAN port connection). You could try putting in the wireless adapter MAC address and do another clone.

ipconfig /all will five you the MAC addresses.

You connect to your ISP through the modem, the way the ISP knows who you are when you try to connect to their service is with your adapter's MAC address. During initial setup, your ISP needs to know this address, if it's a LAN adapter (a direct link to the modem/router) then this MAC will be registered with them.

The router/modem, has the option to "clone" any MAC addresses, wireless or ethernet adapter. This essentially means the MAC address of any new hardware will be clone into one MAC address which is used my the ISP.
