I didn't think sky lock by mac address,
just extract username/password from original routers serial no.

PPPoA connections don't require any alterations to the MAC address. MER connections do, and connecting with this method is problematical on Sky, most likely intentionally so due to the T&C.

thanks wink

so back to the original question; and a quick look in the manual (pg27)
ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/DGN1000_SM_15Oct09...

Configure your router to spoof your computerís MAC address. This can be done in the
Basic Settings menu. Refer to the online help in the wireless modem router main menu

so login to the router and click help...

Are you having trouble connecting with PPPoA then? Spoofing the MAC should not be necessary.
