First of, a little context as to why I ask this question: I'm currently researching how I can get more "anonymous" online, not because I'm doing anything I need to hide, but simply because I value my private life. And privacy online is becoming less of a standard, than I would like it to be.
Now, with that out of the way; I'm currently looking into writing my own "MAC Address randomizer script", to spoof my MAC address upon reboot.
Now I started wondering, what would happen if two computers would access the same local network, with the same MAC Address? I started reading round on Google, and without getting into any details, people clearly stated it would be a mess.
So, how would one avoid this? As I see it (I might be wrong), if I randomize my MAC address, there should be a chance my computer could get the same MAC address as another computer on the network? The chance might be small in general, but would get proportionally bigger on large networks, like on universities for example.
I can't really think of a way to resolve this though.
Do you guys have any experience with this?
