    Before in XP and Vista, I can change the mac address of my Wifi adapter using Mac changer tool in SIW but It doesn't work in windows 7. It says that the mac has been changed successfully but nothing has been change. I tried many programs but it didn't work. I read later that in windows 7 you can only change the mac to address that start lik 10-, 11- or 12-.

    How can change the mac address in windows 7 to any Mac that I want.

    I read on another forum it Has to start with 12, so try it, if it works then you know it is true.

    There isn't even a single Vendor in the world that has a MAC address that starts with 12. So just by knowing you were changing it to 12 I would know you have a FAKE mac address sitting on my network.
