well you cant scan your own macs unless you have a working one than use ambitconfig

but you can scan at say ... a mates house (if hes on VM)

Have Fun

cheers

no I'm still paying for my 2mg connection so if I dont use my 2mb modem and use my flashed one with my own mac address i should be ok as long as I dont use both modems at the same time is that right? yeah it has been flashed with ambit.

Cheers
