MAC Address can be changed in two ways. Some LAN Adapter vendors allow to change the address from properties but others dont allow it this way. For these adapters like broadcom, you will have to change MAC address in registry. The following URL guides through both of these processes.

MAC Address Spoofing

I've read several solutions - some work, some don't. One thing to note is that there can be different descriptor names for the MAC Address setting for different cards. The most common referenced solution I've seen in the Advanced Configuration Properties of a card is "Network Address". I have an Intel NIC and its MAC address is under the descriptor "Locally Administered Address". Since - regardless of card manufacturer - the only descriptors with the word "Address" in them seem to be exclusively related to the MAC address, just look in your card's Advanced Configuration Properties for a descriptor that includes the word "Address".

Note that syntax may require only the values - no separators such as ":" or "-".

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Thanks teligence, very useful solution!

Have you found any hack around microsoft's set limit on the macs. The limit is - the 2nd character of mac has to be 2 or 6 or A or E.


x = any character
y = 2 or 6 or A or E

Know any workaround to spoof it to any mac without limits?

Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1

FWIW: Not to revive this old thread but my thoughts on changing the MAC address on ethernet boards or wireless devices is in the vein of spoofing or attempting to bypass access restrictions and I would not help if I knew how to do it. I don't see any valid reasons for changing MAC address's.

Just my opinion.
