I'm not sure this is true, I also have home and when I bought my own cable
modem and returned there's they had to re-provision the connection and
required the MAC address of the new modem, they then incremented by
workstation name by 1 letter . . . it sounds like they are using the MAC
address AND the workstation name to validate that the modem (really a
bridge) is authorized for a lease . . .
but then again, i could be wrong
