Re: Re: Re: And WHERE would they get data from? Google and Facebook.
It's basically to tie the internet connection to a single computer. That's why most of the routers you buy today have MAC cloning, otherwise it's as you say, no one else could use the connection there.... stupid .. just stupid.
Re: Already done! DOJ went ONLY after a guy who violated physical security,
and falsified a sub-net address
WHAT are you talking about?!? His MAC address ?
That's a machine address that should be unique to a network/sub-net. Changing MACs helps in troubleshooting as NO 2(or more) computers can have the same MAC(just like an IP address). I've had to do it on occasion at home because of computer disconnects, network freezes, and the like.
