i'm a bit of a dodo so i chundered along with my sometimes ok sometimes not superhub1 until this week when i have been forced to take action. since tuesday tied to an ethernet cable and no wifi. got a technician coming on monday which seems so far away. quite ashamed i'm paying stupid prices for a phoneline i don't use and a tv package i don't watch. ridiculous really. so, i thought, gotta do something and while i'm here talking to some little man from a distant land i'll ask for my mac code and do some research. Mac code says he? what is that? anyhoo, according to him i can either have the technician come out or have the mac code from another department. but not both. so i went with the technician cos i am utterly fed up.
when the technician comes does he have spare goodies with him or will he say i'm afraid this hub is very very old and not working and we'll have to order a replacement. and how long will that take. ethernet is not ideal but it's better than nothing.
dunno if i should phone again and demand the mac code or just wait...
I thought mac codes were a thing of the past? Don't you just contact your chosen new provider and they do the transfer for you?
indeed yes. of course not for cable though, as you can't "migrate" from cable broadband to DSL broadband. you terminate one and sign-up to another. phone lines can migrate though, but no MAC code is needed
