Changing the MAC address is not going to make a difference to WiFi data limits. Are you trying to do something illegal here? We cannot support that.

Actually, I was more concerned with the legality of spoofing the MAC address itself.

Regardless, Intel Customer Support will need to tell us if a tool is available (I don't know if one exists for these Wireless cards). At the same time, have you checked the driver settings to see if this can be changed on the fly? Some drivers support a randomizing of MAC addresses.

H​ope this helps,

Hello everyone,

 

The Media Access Control (MAC) address is a hardware ID implemented during the manufacturing process and therefore cannot be changed.

 

Some third-party software applications can imitate a MAC address. For security reasons, we do not support this practice.

 

You can see this information on the link below.

Hi SAGRA19, I was messing around with the AP last night and got confused setting up MAC filtering. Obviously I lost access. I had a little problem ... the AP is neighbor-owned. So I got down to business to change the MAC of the laptop and Boalaaa. If you still need help I'll tell you how I did it privately (staying within the law as well).

"Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165"
Access Point:"XX:XX:XX:XX:7e:90"
Authentication: XXX
