    MAC address changes and forged transmits are also used by Windows as a mechanism to protect against duplicate IP addresses on the network. If a Windows system detects an IP address conflict it will send out a forged transmit to reset the IP to the original MAC of the machine it think originally owned it and then take itself off the network. This protection mechanism for duplicate IP addresses won’t work without these security settings allowed.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your
    site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But
    maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful
    lot of text for only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
