There is a RaLink Generic 184.108.40.206 firmware that can be flashed to the WHR-G300N
I flashed it to one of mine, and what do you know... SAME MAC address:
LAN MAC: 00:1D:73:11:11:12
I think what happened is Buffalo went Cheap and assigned the same MAC to all their routers.
It can't be just a DD-WRT bug if the same MAC shows up with generic RaLink firmware.
Guess we are just stuck with it. _________________ Soylent Green Is People !

READ THIS SECTION ALSO!
The steps above do not always work on all WHR-G300N's
There is another way to fix this.
Goto the Main Setup tab, then the MAC Address Clone sub-tab.
Click the Enable radio button.
Fill in the Wireless MAC info as the SAME info from the Sys-Info page.
Don't change the Wireless MAC to a different value than what is shown on the Sys-Info page - its un-necessary!
You SHOULD change the WAN MAC address.
You should only have to change the last 3 hex values.
They can be whatever you want, leave the first 3 values alone.
Apply Settings and reboot.
This DOES work on 13525 and 136387!
I can confirm this info above, i have one DIR600B1 e one DIR300B1 and they only work in Repeater Mode with Virtual Interface added if i change the wireless mac of the routers in the Mac Address Clone tab.However i have 3 problems N mode is not working properly, i must use this ifconfig ra0 down in the administration->commands->save startup to disable the physical interface ( without this it will repeat 2 SSID's) the third problem is that we can not see any signal strength/quality from the main AP in the wireless status.I tested several builds and all of the them works in this way.right now i'm running r18000.
