4. Our Xcelerator Broadband requires that your computer be registered to our
servers. Your computer's MAC address is obtained and setup when you order
Xcelerator Broadband service. If you get a new computer, add a router, or get a new network card we will need
to update our servers with your new MAC address.
Wheat State must have your MAC address on file to connect.
To find your MAC address follow these instructions.
Go to Accessories
Select Command Prompt
Type "ipconfig /all"
This will list your Network connections. We need the Physical Address (MAC).
It will be similar to this (00:1a:34:56:fa:12) in six groups of two letter
number combinations from 1-9 and A-F.
To find the MAC address on a router you typically have to log in to the router's
web interface and locate the "WAN MAC ADDRESS."
Most routers have the option to "Clone" the MAC address. This means that the
router can take the MAC of your PC to use as its own. This is helpful when
adding a router to an existing Xcelerator Broadband connection, as you won't
need to update the MAC address on file. You can then switch back and forth
between your router and PC without having to contact Wheat State.
