    Use some application like wget, curl, axel to read the information
    from the cable modem, or use some programming language like perl.

    No idea what you would use on Micro$oft.

    If you have physical access - go look at it - this info is usually on the
    side / bottom.

    Most cable modems have an internal web admin / status page ... for example
    http://192.168.100.1 works for Motorola and Linksys cable modems. You
    should be able to look up you make / model on the vendor's website and / or
    the manual.

    This is what I thought. I've done a lot of reading on this in the last
    few days and nobody has actually said this. It would be just "Obtain the
    Mac address and Serial Number"; nothing about how!

    Thanks for your reply and information.

    You haven't said if you want it visually or electrically yet.
    I assume that it's written on the modem and you don't want it that way.
    You also didn't specify modem make/model.

    Don't know what make or model; not yet anyways. Will be going over to a
    friend that is subscribed to Shaw cable and will pull this information
    of his modem; as I need to flash this info unto mine.

    Mine is a Motorola SB5100 cable modem

    They have a status page where the info should be available. I know it's
    there on my Terayon and also on the back/bottom of the case.

    I don't think you will be dong that. Each cable company controls the
    firmware that goes onto your cable modem - regardless if you own it or rent
    it.

    Messing with the firmware will only lead to all sorts of problems with your
    cable company.
