Hi all
I have just installed bt broadband with a speedtouch modem usb connection it works fine but i want to use a linksys modem and a linksys router instead hardwiring two desktops and using wireless on a laptop but here is the problem the software that came with the speedtouch bt item is linked to the modem and it will not work with the linksys but i am informed that if i CLONE the linksys then all will be well the question is how do i clone the linksys any ideas out there i will be pleased to receive some guidance

thanks for the comments but i have tried the first one that is uninstalling the speedtouch and installing the linksis but the software is linked to the speedtouch and wont connect with the linksis on the second one using ipconfig/all in a command window will give me a physical address for the linksis and a physical address for the speedtouch,-is this the MAC address because it is the only one that seems to remain constant, the IP address and the DNS servers change each time i connect my problem is that i do not know how to clone the MAC address, there must be an answer somewhere
