Change MAC Address Portable is a straightforward piece of software that you can use to alter the MAC address of an Internet connection. Once the Internet connection is selected, you can view details about the network adapters (name, GUID, connection type, status), MAC address (current, hardware, spoofed status), and network parameters (DHCP and autoconfig enabled, IP address, mask, gateway, DHCP and DNS servers).
In order to change the MAC address, all you have to do is input a new value and select a manufacturer from the drop-down list, along with the filling method (e.g. fully random, only random device list).
Other options of Change MAC Address let you reset, refresh and look up a MAC address, as well as restart the Internet connection and change the UI language (English or Russian). There are no other settings available through this tool.
