      Netgear D7000 - Setup guide (Router mac address needed?)

      I am considering the D7000 as a one box solution but am not 100% sure of how this things sets up as a replacement for a SR102.

      I already have extracted my username and password details but am unsure about router mac address (option 60??) Some threads mention it as being needed and some do not. Is this just the LAN or WAN mac address that I can get from the admin pages of the SR102 or is there any further work needed to get this info from elsewhere?

      Many thanks

      I picked one up and it all worked fine just through the setup wizard. It did throw up an error at the end of the setup but by that point the connection was up and running.

      Really easy 1 box solution!
