I dunno, but my ATT installer mostly ignored the non-empty data
center rack (with a huge DIGITAL on the side) in my spare bedroom/office
and wanted me to kick up IE on my Mac cause his windows laptop
"Er, IE was the second thing to go; sorry, I don't have
the energy to update it every 3 days."
We got it working with Mozilla. And it strikes me that he
may not have ever SEEN a datacenter rack.
One way that HAS allegedly been used has been to "catch" MAC
addresses that Netgear and LinkSys use. I just told him I used
an airport (which does NAT). He had no problem.
