Configurare noua (How To)

Situatie

There might be a time when you want to change the MAC address of your network adapter. The MAC address (Media Access Control address) is a unique identifier that is used to identify your computer in a network. Changing it can help you diagnose network issues, browse outside a school or your organization’s allowed list of sites, or just have a little fun with a silly name.

Using Device Manager

  • To find it easily on newer Windows computers, press Win + X and click “Device Manager”.

2. In your Device Manager, you will see a list of all of the hardware installed on your computer. These are sorted into categories. Expand the Network Adapters section to see all of your installed network adapters.

  • If you are not sure which adapter you are using, see Step 1 of the second method to find your device’s Description.

Editing the Registry

  • Type ipconfig /all and press Enter. Note the Description and Physical Address for the active network device. Ignore devices that aren’t active (Media Disconnected).
  • Type net config rdr and press Enter. Note the GUID, which is displayed between the “{}” brackets next to the Physical Address you recorded earlier.
  • Making incorrect changes to the registry can cause your system to malfunction.
