Editors' review

Technitium MAC Address Changer is a free tool that can change your Media Access Control (MAC) address. Your Network Interface Card (NIC) is hard-wired with a specific MAC address. Technitium MAC Changer can change any Ethernet NIC's MAC address to a specific address or generate a random address. It includes an easy workaround that lets you change the MAC address of most Wi-Fi adapters in Windows Vista and above.

Pros

Quick MAC: Technitium MAC Address Changer changes and restores MAC addresses quickly and easily. Help options include a Help file, blog, and Command Line parameters.

Useful options: We could make MAC addresses persistent and automatically restart our system to apply changes, delete network adapters from the Registry, and configure proxies, among other options.

Go 02: A checkbox let us add 02 as the first octet of MAC addresses, enabling Technitium MAC Address Changer to work with Wi-Fi adapters without exposing the original MAC address.

Random access: Press a button to generate a Random MAC Address.

Cons

Vista blues: Some users have reported issues when running Technitium MAC Address Changer in Vista and with certain MAC address formats in Windows 7. The developer's blog and user forum offer solutions to most issues, though. We had no issues in Windows 7 Home Premium SP1.

Bottom Line

The ability to change MAC addresses is an important component of network security, whether it's an enterprise LAN or your home media network. Technitium MAC Address Changer is no-nonsense freeware that gets the job done.

    "Doesn't work, and can't even end the process."

    January 09, 2014   |   By Brain_Buster

    Version: Technitium MAC Address Changer 6.0.5

    Pros

    None.

    None.

    Even less than none.

    Cons

    It made my laptop go crazy

    Made the fan blow hard

    Though it showed as active in processes, there was now window for the application.

    When I tried to "End Process," it was impossible to do so.

    I had to shut down all programs and reboot.

    Summary

    I don't know whether the program itself is this ****** or whether it's only cnet's copy of it. But it's horrible.
