Windows 7: Changing mac address airlive WT-2000pci

Changing mac address airlive WT-2000pci

Hi. I'm having problem with my airlive WT-2000pci wireless card. I want to change mac address/network address under windows 7 x64bit 7600rtm but with no luck. I'm using latest official drivers for 64bit vista, I have even tried older drivers but nothing helps. When I log onto windows XP i can easily change mac address with device manager>properties>advanced>network address and i just enter desired mac address. This option (network address) doesn't exist in Windows 7. I've done windows 7 update and device manager refers the wireless card as Ralink RT61, not as Airlive WT-2000pci as it did before the update. I've googled for hours but found nothing that could help me, I've even send mail to airlive support but with no reply so far. I'm desperate to change my mac address since my Wireless ISP has mac authentication for every account and I have 2 accounts and I want to use them from 1 pc (hence 1 wlan card 1 account). This is the only thing making me keep dualboot win7 and xp on my machine.
Is there solution for my problem? Regards, Samir, Bosnia.

Your MAC should be the same given its a hardware tied address not a software tied address.

Yes I know that but my ISP doesn't want to turn off mac auth for security reasons.

Your mac address should not change regardless of your os.
You should be able to run any os and your mac not change.
If you are dead set on trying to change you mac try this.

Just run it in compatibility mode.
