How to change Mac Address manually and spoof using tool.

Computers talk or communicate over the network using Mac address(Media Access Control Address ) which is unique for each and every machine.Here in this post we will see how we can spoof or change the Mac Address manually and using tools.


Using Registry:

Step 1.
Type "Regedit" in run and press enter.In the regedit winodow follow the path
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318] as shown in the image below.
Step 2.
Check all the values under the above path to find the correct driver description(DriverDesc) as shown in the above image.For me it was "0009",Now search for "NetworkAddress" in the right side of the editor,if you find it then change the value to your desired 12 digit number(MacAddress).If you cannot find "NetworkAddress" then create a new "string value".
Step 3.
 Now rename the new string value to "NetworkAddress" and set the value to a random 12-digit number as shown below.
Step 4.
Now disable the connection and enable then open up command prompt and type the command ipconfig /all to find the change in Mac Address.

Using tools:

1.SMAC :
It is not a freeware tool to use but it is a very useful tool and widely used for spoofing MacAddress(Download)

It is an opensource tool and has a command line usage.(Download)

If it a very user friendly tool you just need to double click on the executable thats it.(Download)

Use TMAC. It's freeware utility that changes your MAC address. You can choose one of a lot of available MACs, but you must run it as administrator if you use Win7. Anyway thanks for this good, useful tutorial :)
