I think you're out of luck.  There's no way to change the mac address in that particular modem.  Not sure why you'd need to, though.  Your ISP will be seeing the MAC address of whatever device (usually a router) is connected on your side of the modem anyway.

Despite its humble beginnings, phishing has come a long way since those first crudely constructed emails. Today, phishing sites can appear and disappear in the length of a coffee break, and it takes more than a little know-how to keep your clients secure.

The MAC address of a network device is created by the manufacturer of the device when it is built.  I suspect it is illegal to tamper with the physical address of that device, kinda like tearing the do not remote tag from a hotel mattress.

Nice.   It's possible to change the MAC address of a lot of routers, modems, and NIC's (and there's certainly nothing illegal about it), but not that particular model.   Good luck, though.
