Try running this on the interface in question:

ifconfig eth0 hw ether 00:11:22:33:44:55

Obviously replace eth0 with your interface's name, and 00:11:22:33:44:55 with the MAC address you want it to have. You have to do this every time you reboot [or remove and reinsert the driver, if it uses a module].
