    the mac ur using is no good, look on ur overview page near the bottom where it says configuration file size, you want it to be in the 400's for it to work, what yours is reading is 1208 bytes which as your pointed out is a docsis 1.1

    as you been advised in ur other post i would try macs that begin with 0008, 0020, 0040, 000a etc

    also instead of just using ur m8's mac i would just get him/her to do a sniff for you from there house and just use them and it should get u sorted.
