I just want to know if these instructions are correct

Note:

1) In order to get DSL, you must have phone service in an area that offers DSL service.
2) In order to get cable modem service, you must have cable television service in an area that offers cable broadband service.

Raw materials:

1) You must purchase the exact same type of DSL or Cable modem that is offered by your local Internet service provider. A large variety of high-speed modems are available on Ebay.
2) You must purchase a network card that allows you to change its mac address. These are available from online shops on the Internet.

Steps:

1) You must have a mac address that is authorized in your area. In order to find a valid mac address, simply ask a friend who has cable modem/DSL access to do the following:

A) Click "start," then "run," then type "winipcfg."
B) Click the down arrow in the "Ethernet Adapter Information" box to locate the computer's network card.
C) Click the name of the computer's network card. In the "Adapter Address" field the card's mac address will appear.
D) Ask your friend to tell you what the 12-character mac address is.

2) Install the network card described in raw materials into your computer.
3) Program it so that its mac address is identical to your friend's mac address.
4) Completely hook up your broadband modem to your computer and to the (phone|cable) source.

Note: Internet service providers typically offer subscribers equipment to access the Internet. This equipment is usually provided to service providers in bulk from manufacturers of broadband equipment. This equipment, when manufactured, is given mac addresses that are sequential. What this means is that if your friends mac address is, say “000000000001,” then it is likely that “000000000002” is also a valid mac address in your area.

That’s it; you have broadband Internet access for free. You're welcome.

OH and what do you do after you change the mac address

No, it's not correct. There are at least two problems with the instructions pertaining to networking.

The bigger problem is that it is also illegal in many places. Read this: http://forums.netstumbler.com/showthread.php?p=73366#post73366

The next problem in line would be your inability to post in the correct forum. How the fuck does theft of service relate to stumbling setups?


Added this fucktard to the War-Tard hall of shame.

Correct so far, the next step is to call the ISP and tell them you want to subscribe - they will typically provision the service and provide the necessary hardware. Oh - have your credit card handy when you call.
