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.
