'mac' will be same. it is factory written and unique.

disconnecting coax input cable to modem will break his internet service

disconnecting modem cable output from computer will break his dhcp
connection to cable modem. when he connects back up, he will receive
same default from cable modem.

or, pull power to cable modem.

both hdcp's reset.

no reset button. no re-setup of cable modem 'password', 'vpi', 'vci',
'atm encap', 'atm pvc', etc, whatever, needed.
