| When the system boots, it will read rc.conf, and then
| it will pass the ifconfig_inf="..." to ifconfig, so
| what I do is just to add ether aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff to
| that line:
| ifconfig_fxp0="inet 18.104.22.168 netmask 255.0.0.0 ether aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff"
Just add a similar line to the laptop, and change it by
one number i.e.:
