It is very common for DSL and cable modems to remember the MAC
address they gave the lease to, and not to work with any other NIC
untill ether power-cycled, or the lease expires. Some even require
your ISP tell the modem to accept a new NIC. This is the reason for
the "clone" option on a lot of firewall/routers.
Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
