Subject: More info on spoofing MAC addresses on Win98
I have some additional information that you might like to add.
If you are using a PCMCIA card, you can do the following instead of rebooting:
1. Open winipcfg;
2. Select card and release the DHCP settings;
3. Close winipcfg;
4. Open "PC Card (PCMCIA)" -in control panel or on the task bar if set;
5. Stop the card;
6. Eject the card;
7. Re-insert the card;
8. Open winipcfg;
9. Select card and renew the DHCP settings;
Quite a few [easy] steps, but with no reboot necessary -- could be handy for some.
Thanks for the information you provided, it is greatly appreciated. Now I don't need to be locked into using a particular NIC card -- my nephew needs one and it must be a 16 bit card. I have 2 cards, 1 is 16 bit, the other is 32 bit; but only my 16 bit MAC is registered at one of the sites that I visit. I can now use that MAC for the 32 bit card and loan the 16 bit card to my nephew (for his home only use).
