Officially you're not allowed to run servers on residential accounts according to the AUP.

If you choose to, it is at your own risk.

If you are using Win2K or XP, you can use this program SMAC to "spoof" your MAC in Windows to make it "think" your NIC has a new MAC address. This however does not change your hardware MAC that is programmed on your NIC.

please note this is a third party website. Use at your own risk

Please bear in mind that Shaw does not support third-party software or hardware that may alter or impact the connectivity of your service. This includes routers, firewalls (both software and hardware) or other third-party security and/or protection options. Use of these programs is at the user's risk and responsibility.

Also bear in mind that if you are changing your MAC address in order to gain a new IP address it is not always going to work.

With Terayon, the online light (top one) will always remain on while the bottom two will flicker (send recieve) according to modem activity

With Motorola, the "Power, Receive, Send, Online" are at a solid green state.

With Motorola DOCSIS modems (SB5100, SB5101, SB5102 and SB5120) the Power, Receive, Send and Online lights are at a solid green state, and the PC/Activity light will flash rapidly when hooked up to a PC/Router (whether the PC or router is doing anything or not).

This is normal behaviour for the modem and you shouldn't be concerned.

This is usually booked as a "NO CABLE" call and is usually supposed to be completed within 24 hours of the booking of the service call, but if not fixed by 9pm the next day calling Shaw again is recommended.
