You have to change the MAC address on what? A router, the settings on your computer? That seems really odd.

How are you connected to the modem?

If possible, first thing to try would be resetting the modem to default

Can you list everything you've done and what your setup is? There's a lot of people on here that may be able to help. It's very odd to have to change a MAC address daily just to get online.

Agreed..  Very odd...

Are you needing to change the MAC address to access a particular service?  Or the entire internet?

If just for a couple services, you are likely getting IP blocked by whatever game/service you are using.

If you can't get online at all without changing your MAC address, something else is going on (perhaps your device isn't doing DHCP correctly and just needs the reboot that changing the MAC address does to a router)
