Re: It would seem

The only thing to watch out for with that is manufacturer idiocy. IIRC when BT first moved from having a generic default WEP/WPA password on the Homehub they went with the serial number. Umfortunately it was possible to get the AP to tell you it's serial before you'd authenticated.....

You can almost guarantee at least one manufacturer will drop that info into the http headers, or body to aid in identifying the kit when they get a support call
