      MAC Code

      I am planning to migrate from SKY to another ISP. There is a MAC No. visible under the SKY BB box. Is it the same as the migration code they are supposed to give me when I leave them? Kindly advice

      The MAC Code on the Sky BB box is the MAC address of the network card inside it, and has absolutely nothing to do with the MAC code that BT supply for switching your ISP provider.

      Confusing i know....
      I don't care if the glass is half full or half empty, i just want to know who's been drinking my pint!!!
