A program I use loads the mac address of my wireless card first,then uses this mac address as the hardware id that the product key is controlled by. I've tried spoofing the mac address on the wireless card, but no matter what i do it doesn't register in my program. I am very familiar with spoofing and have done this numerous times in XP. I have done it through the registry and through the advanced settings on the adapter itself. Nothing works.

    I have given up on the spoofing, my lan card has the correct mac address. I just need to change the order in which Vista loads this device so that my wired ethernetloads first.

    Here's what I have tried so far.

Rebooted the computer and my program still pulled the mac address from the wireless. Next disabled the wireless in the network manager and rebooted, now it works perfectly. The mac address from the wired ethernet shows up and the program works.

    Now i re-enabled the wireless and within minutes the mac adress changed back to the wireless in the program and the program wont work.

    The only way I can see this working is ifI can get the priority of the wired ethernet to be before the wireless.It seems like the priority is dynamicnot static.Is there a way to do this?I've been all over the internet searching but cannot find anything about this.

    I even went into the registry and added a valueof the IRQXXPriority, but that didn't work either.
