Not using Cable Modem. (ADSL Bridge).
Furthermore, I should have had this problem with 1.2b7 too if it was not m0n0wall

Still no success here bytheway.
However, when I remove the DHCLIENT.LEASES file, going back to the original MAC
address does not work either, in the few tests I've performed. Maybe a problem
that is DHCLIENT related ??
Warning, the tests where quick, I'll try another one later one.

Stil trying to pin it down... I'll keep you posted.
