Pulling my hair out!

I tried both, unplug modem for ~15 mins - restart cable modem - fire up 
m0n0 - NO GO!

Next, unplug modem for ~15 mins - set m0n0 MAC to same as WAN mac on 
BEFW11S4 (which was working as I type this) - restart cable modem - boot 
up m0n0 - still NO GO.....

One thing I notice, when I hook m0n0 to a port on the linksys it grabs 
an IP and on the link status page on the m0n0 it shows a gateway address 
and no subnet mask but when I hook it to the cable modem it shows IP 
address and subnet as

Thanks to all who are trying to get me pointed in the right direction!

make that one read the mac address of the actual nic card that is connecting to the modem, in other
owrds, what ever is there make it say the REAL mac address......i have time warner, and comcast also
and worked like a charm for me

same mac addresss into the seeting for mac address, and should work fine
