HOW TO CHANGE MAC ADDRESS ON WINDOWS…

What is MAC address…??

A media access control address (MAC address) is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on the physical network segment. MAC addresses are used as a network address for most IEEE 802 network technologies, including Ethernet. Logically, MAC addresses are used in the media access control protocol sublayer of the OSI reference model.

Requirement:
 
1. Windows OS (7, XP, etc)

Step by step How to Change MAC Address on Windows:

1. Open our command prompt (press windows key + R and type cmd).
type ipconfig /all to view our MAC address. On this picture is my MAC address.

2. Now the next step open run (press windows keyboard + R and type ncpa.cpl). When window pop up, right click your connection and choose properties.(see picture)
3. A connection window now will pop up. Click configure button.
3. Again… 😛 another window will pop up about the adapter properties. Click the advanced tab.
On the property column, choose and click Network Address. In the example picture below, I give the value 00-00-00-00-00-01.
click OK when you finished.
4. To check the changes, open the command prompt and check the new MAC address by typing ipconfig /all.
Conclusion:
1. This MAC change method is useful to do a hit and run. Network admin sometimes banned user from the MAC address, so we just need to change the MAC to bypass the ban :-D.
Hope its useful :-)
