I wanted to connect to WiFi Networks With a fake Mac address. In Windows, I changed Network address in Network devices. Is there any good way of doing this?

This might already have an answer here.

You can try this:

  1. Install macchanger sudo apt-get install macchanger macchanger-gtk
  2. sudo ifconfig wlan0 down

    NOTE: wlan0 my change according to your card, please check ifconfig.

  3. sudo macchanger -a wlan0
  4. sudo ifconfig wlan0 up
  5. now I suggest once disabling and enabling of Wifi.
