    I haven't seen a NIC that has resisted having it's MAC changed, but as you say, I can't see how changing the MAC will have any affect on the static IP assigned by the ISP...

    Well if it's a static IP, they usually aren't dynamically assinged. Unless it is actually DHCP and the ISP has made a reservation on that DHCP server so that whenever DHCP request packets are recieved from that MAC address, it is offered a particular IP. I've seen that on cable connections. But I've seen it more on PPPoE DSL connections where they offer static IP's.

    That's the only way i can see it.

    I like the way that kane2g thinks. I would love it if you got another ISP as I work for one of the others.:D

    Ah okay, fair enough :).

    Should probably try connecting with a different box and seeing what that does to the MAC address, then :).
