Wait! Are you dual booting windows and linux, or swapping the
modem between two different computers? Vast numbers
of cable companies register the MAC address of the interface
they are first connected to and refuse to talk to other
NIC cards without calling up the cable company and getting
things reset.

That's one of the reasons that the MAC spoofing virtually
all routers have is so useful. You can fool with your hardware
without talking to the cable company.
