The free wifi networks in the public libraries where I live only allow 2h/day share. They use the MAC address to check if a user has used up his daily quota.

To bypass this limitation, I'd like to change the USB connector's MAC address. Does someone know if a utility is available for XP and this device?

Thank you.

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

I applaud your honesty, but you might get more sympathy if you don't tell people why you want to do it in this particular situation ;) – Farseeker Jul 21 '09 at 3:12

If you are not comfortable in the registry and making the changes yourself, you can use applications like MadMACs to do it for you. This one even includes a randomizing feature so you don't have to enter a new one yourself each time.
