The only reasonable response to THIS, is faking a random
MAC address in order to connect (if that is really the
problem here). If they don't want to help, then you gotta
help yourself.

Seriously though, ... I imagine a not-so-smart person
reading your technical support request and having no
idea what you talk about. "MAC address? What is that?
libomv light? Uh uh". Fortunately the phrase "text-only
viewer" got through and brought a smile back on her
face: pull-down menu, default response *click*. NEXT!
"Oh, I'm so good at my work; dealing with like 5 requests
per minute!".
