I have a timer on my home network which is controlled by the mac address. I have discovered that my 14yr old son has changed his Mac address to get round the block which tbh, im kind of impressed by tbh.. and a lil annoyed.
I havent showed my hand as this for me is now a cat & mouse game. It used to be hard to change the mac & could only be done in dos.. so i thought!
Its a new Intel chipset NIC device on his M/B & quick google search brings up a how to ffs.

This is where im stuck, as im not sure what move to make to prevent internet access I know the easy solution is to give him a bollocking, but as he is leaning towards a career in IT, so as he is having to learn & research networking in hope to keep in his internet on for longer, he is getting an education it without in realising it lol
