SOLVED: ISP brought a guy over and he checked the MAC address on their end to see if it matched mine. The lady that I originally called cleared my MAC address instead of putting in the new one! The tech put my MAC address in and it was solved just like that.
Hello! To preface this, I am a brand new OpenWRT user and would like to become familiar with the software, but this issue has arose first and needs a resolution.
I have setup my OpenWRT router (BPI-R3) with a DOCSIS 3.1 modem (Arris S33). My modem has established a connection to the internet through a phone call with my ISP and providing them with the MAC address of the modem. However, my OpenWRT router cannot seem to establish a connection to the internet through the modem. When connected to the router, which is connected to the modem, I can access both the modem config page and LuCI. I am not sure what to do at this point.
Here is my network topology:
Modem(Arris S33) <-> OpenWRT router (BPI-R3) <-> unmanaged switch <-> devices
To test my internet, I am current connected to one of the LAN ports on my OpenWRT router. My OpenWRT router is connected to my modem’s 2.5G Ethernet port through the router’s 1G WAN Ethernet port.
Here is my /etc/config/network:
