Hi Andy, 

Indeed, like Ulrik is saying, in the WAN setup you use the field "MAC
address' under general configuration to " clone" the mac address from your
old setup. In this case your D-LINK router, many cable ISP's have the MAC
registered from the PC they are installing the connection on, because they
don't want people to have a network at home. Cloning the MAC will resolve
this problem.
