Thanks for this - linked from there I found the firmware info which
Linksys have hidden somewhere non-obvious, which tells you that
you can
(a) view the current WAN NIC's MAC address
(b) Manually set the WAN NIC's MAC
(c) Get the Linksys to copy the MAC from the machine you've connected
     to a LAN port to the WAN NIC

I'm sure there are enormous RFCs against (b) and (c) - aren't MACs supposed
to be unique and non-changeable? Who cares - if it works, then fine.
