Change MAC address under XP

Windows XP adds an option to change the MAC address on some network cards under the Advanced tab in the network adapter's Properties menu.A much easier and more reliable method to change a MAC address under Windows is to use a software utility program designed to do this for you.Macshift is a free utility that you can use to spoof your MAC address under Microsoft Windows.

Change the MAC address

To solve the challenge you can :

  • Use a software utility program which is designed to do this (I used SMAC 2.0) and there is also Macshift.
  • Also windows XP adds an option to change the MAC address from the advanced tab in the network properties menu (network properties –> network adapter configure –> advanced)
