Clone MAC Address

Is there any chance that an option to clone a MAC address on the WAN port will come in the future?  I'd like to remove my ISP's "gateway" equipment from my network, but the only way to do this is to clone the gateway's MAC address to whatever router I'm using - which happens to be eero.

  • Old feature request, but one I would also like to bump as it's required with AT&T Fiber to allow the eero to be the actual gateway and not just a pass-thru target.

  • Another eero user that wants to bypass the BGW210 fiber gateway that AT&T makes me use. Can't do that without being able to spoof the BGW210 MAC Address on the eero.

  • I'd love to see this too as I'm having NAT issues using my Eero with AT&T Fiber even when using IP Passthrough.

      LiamBates Curious what issues that you're having with NAT with AT&T Fiber and eero, since I also have both of those. As far as I can tell my NAT is working fine. It may be that you have turned on IP Passthrough, but it isn't working. What is the "External Address" that you see in your eero app? That should be a real WAN address, not a 192.168.0.x type address. If you're seeing NAT from the fiber gateway rather than from your eero, or not seeing a WAN address in "External Address" in the eero app, go into the eero app, and look at details of the gateway eero node ("Advanced"). There are a couple of MAC Addresses there. The one that you need to use for IP Passthrough mode is the one that corresponds to the port that the fiber gateway is connected to. Look at the eero gateway node from the back, and pick the "left" or "right" MAC Address for the eero for IP Passthrough use according to whether the fiber gateway is plugged into the left or right ethernet port; e.g. if you've got the fiber gateway plugged into the left ethernet port on the back of the gateway eero node, then use the "left" MAC Address in IP Passthrough configuration on the fiber gateway.

      Hope this helps. If it doesn't, I'm still curious what issues you're seeing with NAT.
