    Hi ! I'm new here. I encountered a problem with ParrotSec OS.

    I am doing an Security & Penetration Testing and wanted to change MAC address and work. I successfully changed my MAC address, but the internet is not working.

    I was using Digisol (Router) and it's MAC address was registered with my ISP. Later, i changed my router to NetGear and mentioned my OLD MAC address in new router's settings (If i don't do , i wouldn't be able to access internet). I am running Parrot OS in VirtualBox and Practice.

    How do i get access to the internet even after changing my MAC in Parrot OS ?


    Thanks in advance.

    Typically you can change the MAC with the ISP without having to resorting to change the MAC on your router.

    Do you get an IP from the router?

    Yes , i can contact my ISP and change the old MAC to new MAC.

    But, my question is, after doing that,

    In virtualbox, i am running parrot os which is for penetration testing. For testing purposes, i have to spoof my MAC. When i spoof my mac , internet is not accessible.


    What should i do?
