Do you know if your MAC address has changed?

Command Prompt (Elevated) -

ipconfig /all

Elevated = Run As Administrator (Right-Click cmd)

In run you need to type in "cmd" no quotes press enter. Then in the command prompt type in ipconfig /all

Are you sure your MAC address is being changed? Have you tried using the ipconfig /all command within a Command Prompt window?
