If you are now asking your router to run a wired LAN and a wireless LAN at the same time, I think you need to agree with it on how it is supposed to do that!
In particular, does it see itself as a switch between the 2 LANs or as a router?
Are you the router sysadmin or is that your Internet sevice provider?

Better stop for tonight or I'm gonna risk getting into breaking-stuff-out-of-frustration mode. Replugging the ethernet cable better at least give me something usable.
When I was an apartment dweller, it was common that a cable guy futzing in the wire closet to hook up a new account would hose an existing account's connection (mine). More recently, a township roadside mower hit the roadside fiber connection box and took out connections by the dozens; multiple ISP technicians spent hours at that box reconnecting the neighborhood. Sometimes the issue is upstream and physical damage or ineptness.

I've never used that because I am aware of this additional vulnerability. The stupid thing is that the first 6 digits of the hexadecimal representation of a MAC address are manufacturer-specific, so easy to guess. Still, none of the attackers has ever gotten my ass.
