You can not change a mac address. It is hard coded into every piece of network equipment.

A Lan address can be changed in router Lan programming.

If your modem is also a router and you use a router behind it, it is best to put you modem in pass through mode to let the router do NAT.

You can change the routers IP address under Setup/Networking.
SO if your ISP modem is 192.168.0.1, just change the 655 IP address from .0.1 to .1.1. Should work there.

It's recommended to bridge the ISP modem if possible and let the 655 handle the NAT and PPPoE connection if your on DSL. If the ISP modem can't be bridged, use the DMZ on the ISP modem and input the IP address the WAN side gets from the ISP modem into the modems DMZ. This should prevent any double NAT from happening.
