How to change MAC/NIC address in windows

Most of us (at least those who learned computer networking) grew up learning about the 7 layers of OSI model or the simple 4 layer model. The lowest layer is the physical layer. In this layer, all machines are assigned an address called the MAC address (Media Access Control Address). The MAC Addresses come pre-assigned in the hardware and it is assigned by a standard authority so that the MAC addresses do not collide. Most of us thought we can’t change it, but yes, we can change the MAC address.. One of the main reasons for doing this is to get around access control lists(s) on a specific router or server, either by hiding a certain device on a network or by allowing it to mimic another network device.
