*read* my post. Im not telling you to change the MAC address of *all* your cards, im telling you that it is not always possible to change the MAC of *all brands of* cards. I.e. there are some cards which do not support this, and if the option isnt there, it is likely that yours is one of these.

What jbennet said is true. Although this post should have been in the networking forum. Only specific wifi card is able to do so as there is a software in the adpater that can change the mac address. What version of windows are you using? Did you see Locally Administered Address?

Changing of MAC address is not possible.I Think It can not be changed at all.

About MAC spoofing

For more general MAC address spoofing, your MAC address is trivially reset with tools available in default installs of most operating systems. Here are some examples:

Linux: ifconfig eth0 hw ether 03:a0:04:d3:00:11
FreeBSD: ifconfig bge0 link 03:a0:04:d3:00:11
MS Windows: On Microsoft Windows systems, the MAC address is stored in a registry key. The location of that key varies from one MS Windows version to the next one, but finding that and you can just edit (not completely) it yourself. There are numerous free utilities you can download to make this change for you as well .

I have to disagree with you. The MAC address can be changed either the normal way, throught the advanced control panel, using a software or registry. But some wifi cards does not allow you to do that.

Not all cards have the ability to change the MAC in software.

Since using registry does not work, the conclusion is your card does not support changing the MAC address.
