ISP MAC numbers

  sunny staines 12:10 07 May 07

i thought i would ring my ISP and request my MAC number in case i had any problems in the future if i needed it. The ISP told me that is a waste of time as they change each month. the ISP was bulldog pipex.

Is is correct or was i fobbed off?

there's no reason to ask for a MAC number until/unless you need it.

I often read about people who struggle for weeks to get the mac number which was why i thought i would just get my in advance and note in down somewhere useful. but if they change each month then that idea is a waste of time.

When you are given a MAC it is valid for 30 days.

After that you would have to request a new one if it is still required.
