I currently use a Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6230 network adapter, and I need to spoof the mac address in order to test security on my network.

The problem is that the latest driver for this adapter does not allow spoofing.

I also purchased a Netgear N300 Wireless USB Adapter to see if I could use that to change the mac address, but no luck so far.

Could someone point me in the right direction as to how I can change my mac address?

Additional Info :

Windows 8 64 Bit

Dell XPS 15

8 GB Memory

Thanks in advance for any help you guys can give me!

This question came from our site for information security professionals.

What kind of network is that? Residential, office, ...? However, there are testing suites for Linux, and XPS 15 has full support for the Ubuntu distribution. Maybe you can try that way. – lserni Jun 7 '13 at 22:11
Hi Matt - sorry, but this question is offtopic here. I'll pop it over to Superuser where it will be on topic. – Rory Alsop Jun 7 '13 at 22:12
It's a residential network, and i'm mainly looking to do it via windows if possible. – Matt Walker Jun 7 '13 at 23:14
