HWIC-CABLE-D-2 modem and mac-address cloning

Can you use a cloned hardware address with the this cable modem? I have an active linksys cable modem but I would like to replace it with an HWIC card.

Thank you for your question.

The HFC MAC address in the cable modem HWIC is not changeable by the end user.

Generally cable modem customers can call in the MAC Address of the replacement cable modem.

More info:

Q. Is the MAC address on the cable HWIC statically set?

A. Yes, the MAC address of the cable HWIC is statically set at the factory and does not change. There is a label on the faceplate of the cable HWIC with the MAC address printed per the DOCSIS specification.
