Your competition, SMAC (MAC Address spoofer), has
ADDITIONAL capability of:

- Automatically activating new MAC Address right
after you
change it. It shows the status as SMAC power cycle
the NIC
- Generate totally random MAC Address
- Generate a random MAC address based on
- show manufacturer of NIC
- Pre-load MAC Address into a list so you can choose
Address to spoof
- IPConfig button to verify the NIC status
recognized by the
Windows system.

These are features that are useful for me as a
pentest guy.

Your reply suggests clearly that you didnt try the

* In the software, clicking Apply Now button applys
and activates MAC address instantly by enabling and
disabling the NIC automatically.

* After clicking Change button, an button '>>' is
enabled, clicking on it a menu is displayed which has
Generate Random MAC Address option, which generates
random MAC address from the built-in list of

* It clearly shows manufacturer of NIC, see the screen
shot on the website

* When you click change button to edit MAC address, an
drop down list with all manufacturer names and
assigned numbers is displayed to choose from, for
spoofing MAC address.

* Finally, the IPConfig is not at all required (even
to cross verify change in MAC addresS). After pressing
Apply Now button, the NIC is enabled & disabled to
apply new MAC address, and the Active MAC address
field displays the new MAC address, which is read by
calling directly IphlpApi.dll function, which the
IPConfig.exe also refers to. If the Active MAC address
didnt show new MAC address, just press F5, or select
Refresh in options menu to refresh info in the NIC
list box.

Conclusion, Technitium MAC Address Changer v3.1 has
all the functions which commercially available tools
have, and is FREE too.
