How to change the wireless MAC address in Windows 8?
I'm trying to spoof my wireless MAC address in Windows 8.
Hotels have wifi internet, but you need to open a webpage to connect to it first, well Roku player does not allow you to do this. So I'm trying to spoof the MAC address so I can sign in 'being' the Roku player and then switch it back.
However, so far I have been unsuccessful, it refuses to change the MAC address for the wireless adapter (I've tried the controle panel, registry and apps to do this).
Anybody know how to force this?

Select your wireless adapter (mine was \0000). You can tell by the "friendly name" if you scroll through 0000, 0001, ....
There is a key "NetworkAddress" which you can change to whatever you want. I saw somewhere else that it must start with 02 in Windows 8 otherwise it won't accept it. As an example, I used 020E057CD83C.
Disable then enable your network adapter and you should be in business.
