When you connect a new device to the Internet, you need to register the device with the connection to assign it an IP address to get online. There are simple definitions for IP, MAC, and NAT at the bottom of this page.
When an unregistered device is connected to the MCSnet network, it is assigned a temporary private IP (10.200.x.x) which will redirect a (non HTTPS) webpage request to the registration page:
Sometimes the automatic registration is not appropriate if you are on a business package with static IP addresses, or your associated administrative email administrates more than 1 account, or you want to perform the registration before connecting the device up. The MAC address can be changed through the ‘my account’ section of this website, or through selecting ‘No’ on the registration page. The MAC address of your device will likely be labelled on a sticker on the device, usually near the serial number.
After editing the MAC address in the ‘my account’ page, remember to renew the IP (reboot the device) if your device is set to automatically obtain the IP address.
