Decided to investigate and try to understand specificaly why I never could reach the minimum speed that OOL Techs said I should get on the 30/5 line I suscribe to.All cabeling to the drop down Spliter tested.Numerous Software programs Lan Surveyors SMTP ad nuseum.Cfos made a diference.cable Nut helped.Changing DNS servers helped.Finally down to the Modem itself.Scientific Atlanta is not suscriber friendly.So went to a used pair of Motorala Sb5100.Used v140 stable of Sigma X2.
Problem apparently when entering Mac off of my Scientific into Sigma,SB5100 the HFE Mac displayed is not the Mac of the Scientific.So simply reregistred SB5100.Its nice to control ones Modem.
Apologise if this is not the proper forum for this.Perhaps others could post back with the Websites of Forums where this is discussed and or chat rooms.Would like to try 2 modems to one router to see if this speeds up my conection to something close to what I was led to believe.To do that both SB5100 have to have identical Macs.Perhaps have to reflash to another program?Or is their a converter I could use to arrive at the correct string?Guessing that when I do the second SB5100 it will display a different Mac from the other ah will just try it I guess.

Thanks in advance. :)

Your post is confusing at best. The one thing I can say is nothing should ever have the same MAC address as another device. MAC addresses are meant to be for one device and in theory no other device on the planet should have the same MAC address.
