Question Help in Coventry

Hi,

I have a flashed Ambit 255 and am having trouble using this. Every MAC address I have tried either does not connect or I get sent to the activation page (which I have been told is down to a bad MAC). Not using ones from the same area.

Is there anyone else in Coventry that has a working system, if so please can you advise what area you have the MAC from. I have tried sniffing in different parts of Coventry to no avail.

Thank you all in advance.

Thanks for your help so far and for the PM(Kid Warrior - the link was a post from me too)...

Nothing I have tried is working... I am changing the MAC using the Ambit Config tool.. I have tried it with and without the config file... when I do without it takes me to anoter v1g1n page where you would need to go through to setup...
