Welcome kirti007
The mac binding facility is exactly what you need with this type of internet connection. The provider ties their modem or service unit to the single mac address of your PC, so if you want to add your own wireless router you must use one that can be set to that address. Providers do this as a rather feeble attempt to stop you sharing their service across multiple machines. Look up the model number of your Netgear wireless router on google to find out if it has this facility

Thats the first time I know that an adsl interface can have a MAC address. Does it use ethernet on layer 2? I thought it's ppp. Or am I missing some thing here?

Perhaps I should have explained it better; I was trying to keep the english simple. It's not the ADSL interface that has the MAC address, it's the modem/TV box/router thing the ISP puts in your house that is configured to only communicate with a single MAC address out of it's LAN port. This is usually the first address it sees, or the one that it sees when the setup is performed. For most domestic users this is the MAC address of their PC so they are blissfully unaware. But if we then plug in a switch or wireless router instead of the PC the ISP's box then refuses to pass traffic because the upstrem MAC address is now wrong. Hence the MAC Masquerade facility in many routers and devices

Aha :o, that explains allot. so could it help him to manually reset this "ISPs box" and reconfigure it to accept his own netgear router MAC. hmmm, but I guess they thought of that, wouldn't they.

You would guess they'd have thought of that, but usually it works anyway. Like I said, as restrictions go it's more annoying that effective
