Re: [PLUG] cable modem and MAC

If you worried about the cable modem caching the mac address, then you just
need to reset the cable modem everytime you switch machines. Most cable
modems have a reset switch or they reset after they are powercycled.

I guess I would try switching off the power for at least 15 minutes.

I have a Motorola SURFboard SB5100. I was more concerned about DOCSIS, if that matters. I was looking at the Lynksys EtherFast BEFCMU10 which does DOCSIS 1.0, upgradable to 1.1. The Motorola claimed to go up to DOCSIS 2.0. Does that really matter? I hope I didn't buy (free after rebate) the lesser of the two.

I really wanted a modem that could also do DSL, but I guess I can't get everything I want for free!
