Mac Address Spoofing(!)

Hello guys,

 I've set out to spoof my gateway's mac address so that I can get a
new ip address from my cable ISP without having to unplug my modem for
24 hours as they suggested (and is understandable, thats how long
their DHCP lease last). I've tried several things, one of which is
following the instructions here - I also tried doing:
ifconfig xl0 hw ether 00:00:00:00:00 to no avail.

I'm just wondering if anyone on this list knows of a way to do it
successfully or can provide me with a link to some useful

Thanks guys!
