I have a Realtek RTL 8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC (DLink make).
besides that I have SUSELinux 10.0, WinXP Home SP2 and Win 98 installed so a tripple boot PC.
The LAN CArd has gone crazy and every time is start my PC it reports different MAC id.
The WinXP is configured to access internet thru SIfy services. As all sify users know that sify has IP Macid binding so every time I want login the net I have to call sify ppl to release MAC so that I can login
As far as I know MAC id is stored in ROM and can therefore not change by itself am I wrong in this regard and can any one give me any idea why does the mac id change by itself and is there any way I can force sify server to believe that I have not changed LANcard or anything else and save me of the trouble of calling them every time i try to login
