machine pull a private or public address? If it's public, IPCOP should be
fine. If it's a private, contact Verizon and see if they can set the ONT up
in bridge mode.
If it's the MAC address, you should be able to change it in IPCOP..
Where xx:xx:xx:xx:xx is the MAC address your cloning. Where eth1 is your
ifconfig eth1 down hw ether xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
ifconfig eth1 up
