1 is there a macchanger for wince5 on Sun 14 Nov 2010 - 14:25


hi all, is it possible to change the mac of the wifi adapter?

does anyone tried that already with some registry tweaks or is it finally time to boot up a haret-linux?

regards & and a good conversation...

I've tried fiddling in the registry and even tho you can change it, a quick check with ipconfig /all reveals that the network hasnt changed, even after a shutdown and reboot.

For interest sake I used TRE.exe and navigated down to this key---

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Comm\RT28701\Parms] <----my radio card is the Ralink RT2070, yours may be something else.
"NetworkAddress"="00-e0-4c-94-16-37" <--- this is the MAC "string value", which must be entered with the - between numbers.
<------ possibly either Ad-hoc or Infrastructure?
"ProviderName"="Ralink Technology, Inc."
"VendorDesc"="RT2870 802.11 b/g Wireless Card."

Im guessing that because of the XIP (execute-in-place) copy protected nature of WinCe6, none of the changes made in registry will be persistent.

Perhaps I should also mention that the 802.11g driver is a generic RaLink driver, RT2870.dll which is why you cant always search the registry for the ic chip id.

In topic you said Wince5 now Wince6?
Does changing other settings they are taken in account?

my bad

I should have said this is the story on WinCe6, in my rush to write a response I forgot the original question was for ce5. Embarassed

I've tried the other settings, like changing the dword for the network type to 0 and a 2, but didnt see any changes when scanning with another PC.

perhaps the changes will be permanent in Ce5.
