View Full Version : Need to spoof my MAC

10-19-2006, 12:36 AM
So here's the situation:

I'm a student at Penn State. And to use the internet, you need to register your MAC address with the local computer geeks. If the MAC is wrong, the connection no longer works.

I, being the idiot I am, registered the wrong MAC address. The details are unimportant. But now I need to spoof my MAC in Knoppix to get my desktop connection running again.

I know it can be done, I've done it with Ubuntu, I was wondering if it's possible with Knoppix.

Thanks for your help!

The command to use is ifconfig, from the root shell. I have not done it before myself, so better if you read about how to change MAC address with ifconfig from a good source. Here's a good link:
