So before you answer, please make sure you understand what I am asking: I am NOT asking how to change my mac address in general. So just a quick update, someone has a video on youtube with a very hacky workaround for this restriction by passing control of a USB wireless adapter to a VM running a different OS that doesn't have this restriction, and then bridging the virtual network adapter provided by vmware that connects to the VM to the host os ethernet adapter.
I thought of something similar myself a while ago, but I was hoping I could find something a little less hacky such as a program or procedure for disabling the octet restriction in windows.

Take note of the IP address its using in my case, its So if your guest VM's ethernet adapter is using x. In my case, I used In my case it was You can use the guest to spoof macs and do whatever you want with the card without microsoft's BS arbitrary restrictions I am going to try and find a more elegant way to do this as I am not a terribly big fan of Linux.
