I have a problem with a program called SMAC 2.0, a MAC address changer from KLC Consulting. I have been running this program on my laptop successfully for about a year now but recently, just before Christmas, it stopped working and I cannot revive it. The operating system is Windows XP and my wireless adapter is an Intel 3945 ABG. The program appears to have stopped operating shortly after a driver upgrade. A visit to the computers registry shows that any MAC I type in is being transmitted to the registry but not becoming active. I have disabled any other potentially conflicting wireless control programs and reduced security to just Norton 360. The company that produced the program seems to agree that the problem must be the driver. Is there some new feature with Intel drivers that I don't know about or have I overlooked something. You can post your thoughts or email me at mailto:email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org
This feature was available in our 11.5 driver but has since been removed for security reasons.

Thanks for confirming my suspicion that my driver update was keeping me from using my MAC spoofing program. I may purchase a USB NIC for MAC spoofing but in case I want to stick with my Intel Pro/Wireless 3945 ABG, can you suggest where I might download my old driver. My "system restore" failed to make a copy of my old driver so I cannot simply roll it back.
