Every Mediacom setup I've ever worked with I had to have it off the system that was working.
Otherwise no Internet until I spoofed it.

I've never needed my MAC address.  This is one point where I'd be on
the phone complaining without relent to Mediacom, if they somehow put
me in a situation where I had to use it just to get service.  Just
because *I'm* tech savvy doesn't mean everyone is.

But like I said, I've never actually needed my MAC.
