Yes you can use a 120 mac on a 100 and a 100 mac on a 120.

Are you getting anything in hyperterminal? And has your modem taken the update? If your modem has taken the update you will not be able to write a new mac to the modem unless you use a Willem programmer.

However the Willem is for advance users only as it require you lifting a chip from the modem to re-program it then soldering all the 48 little pins (I think that's how mant there is...) back in the correct place.

Hope this helps :xmas:

What I would like to know is can I use an Ambit mac on a sb4200? I am awaiting my sb4200 arriving after giving up on my once trusty Ambit........

Sorry m8 i have nfi whats up with that? What i do is keep a txt document with the no update command/mac change commands in and change the mac each time in it . Firstly i plug me max232 in then i connect it to me modem. Open up hyperterm like i made a saved connection so i dont have to do baud rate or w/e the f00k it is each time. Then i plug it in some txt comes up and goes crazy then i do the no update command each time i dunno why i just do the no update each time unless im in a rush then i skip straight to just the mac change one. so after i do the no update i unplug the power cable whack in the feed put the power back in and w8 a few secs till i get a command line then i do the mac change command and thats it basically reboot modem check im online thats it then whack the modem back into me wifi router .. Hope that helped m8 :Cheers:
