Where can I find the HFC MAC ID address on my SB6190 modem?
The label on the bottom of the SB6190 contains the Media Access Control (MAC) address, a unique, 48-bit value permanently saved in ROM at the factory to identify each Ethernet network device.  To receive data service, the MAC address marked HFC MAC ID will need to be provided to the Internet Service Provider.  The HFC MAC ID is also known as the CMAC Address.  This document includes the following sections:
