Regarding Linkstar Modem by leobeno(m): 12:17am On Oct 05, 2008
For those who have experience(s) with Modems and ISPs offering Internet VIA SAT; My Linkstar Modem developed a problem, so I swapped my Modem, hence, I had to call the ISP to give them the new MAC Address. This process took about 24 Hours to complete and thus increased the recorded downtime (not too professional as downtime is my watchword).

I am wondering if there is a way I can clone (spoof) the MAC address of my Linkstar modem and save myself the stress and time wasted while communicating with my ISP regarding same.

For educational purpose, I think something like this should exist, just as I would clone (spoof) the MAC of my NIC Cards or my Routers. Fellas, I think cloning Modem MAC address in this case, should reduce cost of calling international and most importantly, reduce downtime. I need opinions as "no knowledge is wasted".

Thank you.
