Hi all
I have now got a pre updated Ambit 200 and the ability to change the mac. BUT whats the best way forward. I have a 3meg mac to put on it, but I'm worried about putting this on to the modem and connecting it up and having it lock up. What do I need to do??

thanks

thanks for that ... looks tricky that bit.
I just want a tried and tested way of getting my ambit 200 to stay on and not get zapped. I just know my luck that I'll put on the 3 meg mac and as soon as I hook it up it will lock.... or am I WRONG??

looks like I need to put the no update commands in first and then put on a loq 1 meg mac to prevent it updating. Do you think a 2 meg one would be low enough or am I pushing it :)
