I run two cable modems from my home. I had an old one and when I had service installed got the new one. I pay for one account, no problem. I went to a friends house to set it up the same way today and got everything working except cable company says that she has to pay for 2 accounts to register 2 mac addresses. They say it is phiscally impossible to run two modems and that she needs to buy a router. WELL DUH! But we have the free modem and don't want to buy a router. Now I know it can be done because I run mine that way, but I also know the cable company has both my mac addresses. Is there a way to get around registering the other mac address?
