    Vista and Wireless Mac addresses (what's the problem?)

    This have been bothering me for some time now. I can't seem to properly get a mac address to change in Windows Vista.

    I've made attempts on several machines running this operating system, but my labor bears no fruit each time. And each time it happens I search google only to find instructions that do not work.

    What am I doing wrong here guys? I actually was having the same problem with an OsX machine (the wireless adapter's mac address would not change). But I eventually figured it out with the help of google.

    But this Vista BS is driving me nuts. I tried using the Device properties options to change the mac address and restarting the computer, and I also using a program called macmakeup. of course no option worked....and that's why I'm here.

    Somebody wanna shed some light on this one for me? What's with vista and wireless adapter mac addresses?

    "It's probably something to do with..." I look up today's excuse ".. clock speed"

    Have you tried updating your network card drivers?

    Try this thread:

    Not sure if it's applicable to Vista, but it's worth a try
