Hi Andy!

Probably your ISP DHCP server has a reservation matching you WAN MAC address to, and
they have some kind of problem in their setup.

That explains why you old D-Link router is working, it has another MAC address.

You can try to change the WAN mac address in the M0n0wall, use the one from the D-Link router.
(Interfaces -> WAN -> General configuration -> MAC Address)

If it works, call your ISP and ask them to "reset" your connection, or whatever those cable company
guys call it...:-)

Then remove the "spoffed" MAC address again.

Med venlig hilsen, Best regards

Emne: [m0n0wall] Wan DHCP

Good day,
I am using m0n0 1.3b since about 7 month without any problem's. I have a
cable modem (CTV).
Now I have one with the WAN. I am running the WAN in DHCP an I always
get the IP assigned by my ISP.
Suddenly I do not get any IP from my ISP anymore. Only the DNS is
getting assigned.
I followed according to the handbook trouble- shooting chapter
which did not any good.
Any way I thought my ISP is having a problem, bud first I tried with my
old router (D-link), and surplice, this on is working fine. The only
difference is I am getting now the IP assigned by the ISP.
Now I am pretty much convicted, that the problem is on my side (m0m0). 
Has any one a idea what the problem could be?
Thank's for your reply
Best Regards
