    Hi

    I have client-server network in my office. I am not able to connect to the internet if the office LAN is enabled because my ISP has binded my server MAC to the IP address assigned to me.

    What do I do to connect from the system on my LAN via the main server :confused: .

    Two things:
    One, you can call your ISP and have them either change it to what you want it to be or I think they can just reset it on their end so the next MAC address that connects will be registered.
    Two, assuming you are using a router, most allow you to spoof the MAC address that your ISP sees to be one of your internal NICs for this exact reason.
