What they're doing thwen is giving you a direct connection to their name servers if you are on the same network... I wonder why though, that makes no sense to do.... NS's are almost always handed out by IP.

Internet connections are registered by MAC addresses.

So when you set up a connection with your ISP, your computer's MAC address is registered on the ISP's network. Only registered MAC addresses are able to connect to the ISP.

Your boss was asking the customer for their MAC address so he could register the customer's MAC address with Orange. That way the new customer could connect to Orange.

Get it?

I thought it was the network interface cards (wired and wireless) that were associated with the MAC addresses.

So depending on the modem, wireless card, router, lan card, etc...they each have their own MAC addresses.

So you could switch up all the hardware in your house and you'd have all different MAC addresses.


By registering the modem's MAC address to the ISP, then if anything were to go wrong with the modem it would be a hassle to switch up the modem and also the MAC address residing on the server.
Sounds rather inefficient to me.
