MAC Spoofing Quoting: Anonymous Coward 531147
ok, I see what you are talking about now.
My ISP doesn't care what MAC the router clones. Oddly enough, cloning is a force issue, as to use the router MAC gets no connection. I inquired a tech about this, he said the modem is hardocoded via the ISP to detect a router, and will not address it, it has to be the MAC of a NIC.
The 'Sticky IP' goes as far as the modem. Cloning a different MAC of another PC on the LAN is moot, I can do that all day long and still retain the same IP.
My only ooption has been to release and bypass the router, set the TCP/IP to auto, reset the modem, then obtain a new IP. Once that is done, the router is put back in the scenario, TCP/IP back to LAN - the same IP that I just obtained via the NIC as auto-obtain is still in the modem, and then becomes the IP the router is addressed.
My shift key is tired now, lol.
