Windows 7 Starter & MAC Spoofing
Would anyone with Windows 7 Starter try changing the MAC address on their wireless card?
I'm having trouble changing the MAC address on my netbook running Windows 7 Starter. I've tried both the built in wireless (Atheros AR9285) and a USB dongle (WG111v2) and neither will work.
My desktop running Windows 7 Professional allows me to change the MAC address on the exact same USB dongle.
I've read that Atheros chips are not able to accommodate this, but the Netgear definitely can since it works on my desktop. I wouldn't think Windows 7 Starter would inhibit this but it very well could with the other networking limitations.
I've tried changing it in the hardware manager, registry, and some software available online and none of them actually take effect on the netbook.
If anyone has any data concerning MAC spoofing on Windows 7 Starter it would be much appreciated.
