Easily move between wired and wireless networks
Authored by: denty on Aug 27, '04 04:00:04AM

This is surely an unusual situation for a home computer to find itself in - IP addresses migrating from one MAC address to another! But it's not so unusual in server land.

It may confuse some clients for a while but your Mac - with its solid UNIX core - should be fine.

Sometimes, this is used as a means of providing resilience against physical failure of a cable or interface as the OS and other computers will simply ask for the new MAC address and start using it.
