my ISP is blocking me from using another router using PNP (Plug & play) feature which is pretty annoying which from what they say it is a new technology ( crap ) .I want to use my Asus RT AC-5300 instead of the ISP router but they are forcing me to use their useless DLink DIR 850L and isnt that good. any suggesting on how to adjust my new router instead of theirs ( not as an access point ). i do get internet but it shows me a yellow sign.

Does your ISP's 'Terms Of Service' allow for privately owned hardware beyond the point of entry of service? If not then not much you can do without incurring the wrath of the ISP. If you are allowed to provide your own hardware you may be required to register the MAC address with the ISP.

Who is your ISP?

 

Also, are you sure you mean PNP? Maybe UPnP or Universal Plug and Play?

 

My guess it they don't allow bridging of the ISP gateway. If they allow retail modems, they you can buy your own stand alone modem, which will work with the router. If you already have a modem (not gateway) and your ISP is stopping you from changing your router, you might be able to use MAC cloning to have your new router "look" like your old router. See here for instructions how.

my ISP is Etisalat in UAE they claim is that they can help you with any issue 24/7 using PNP

 

PNP and UPNP i guess they are the same but the UPNP i can disabled on my router but nothing happen when i do that

 

and btw the MAC clone on my router is 00000000000 , i dont think it should be like that ,

i will try the MAC cloning but the MAC clone on my case is 0000000000 i dont think it should be like that

Ahh, it uses Wifi. I don't know anything about wifi ISPs. From the look of it though they don't like users using their own routers.

Cloning the mac address of your workstation won't make any difference in your case.  If you were to substitute your router for theirs you would need to use the Dlinks wan mac address not your workstations.

 

The Dlink is not a modem router combo unit.  You should be able to replace it by connecting your ASUS router to their modem after you have manually inputting the dlinks mac address.
