    Hey, this may seem like a silly and obvious question, but I'd like to be sure before I go ahead.

    Basically, I need the MAC Wifi Address to stay the same, as my landlord allows access to the internet that way, so it changing would just cause hassle.

    I'd be upgrading from Leopard 10.5.8 to Lion.

    Thanks!

    The MAC address will stay the same, as it is "burnt" into the hardware and not bound by the software.
    Or do you mean "Macintosh" with MAC?

    Nope I don't. That's great, I suspected as much, but it's good to know for certain. Thank you!
