    Hah. Your folks don't want you looking up porn after lights out. Why not just use 3G?

    And you can't change it.

    You cannot change your mac address. Most routers have a small reset switch though.

    No the mac address is permanent. The ip address will change if its not static but not the mac.

    you're right with a traditional MAC address on a network adapter, and you're not right in this setting. My dX MAC also changes every reboot on cm7 nightlies (since like #50) and it's madly irritating.

    But it shouldn't. It's supposed to be static. That's a software problem if the phone is reporting different mac addresses.
