changing nic mac address
 
Hello all

Is it possible to change the mac address of NIC card? If it's possible then how can i do it?

No, unfortunatley this is not possible.
Every NIC has a different MAC adress, there isn't a single NIC on this planet who shares a MAC address.

out of interest why do you want to anyway?

I've seen and used software on windows that will change the MAC enough to atleast fool a DHCP server.
