How is this BlackBerry related hdawg ... well, I'll tell ya.

I've got an upcoming flight with WiFi on it and want to use multiple devices, but not pay for multiple connections.

Now to be clear what I'm looking to do is have 1 device on at a time and connected and have no intention of trying to use multiple devices at the same time ... besides, multiple devices with the same MAC on the same network at the same time would be an EPIC FAIL.

So, I found this awesome software that'll change my MAC address of my laptop to match that of my BlackBerry: Technitium MAC Address Changer v5 Release 3 (FREEWARE)

I travel with 2 laptops and a BlackBerry ... so I'll get extra use out of it.

Alternatively you could muscle your way through the registry with this article: How to change MAC-Address in Windows Registry | Windows Reference

Come to think of it ... my travel router and bridge a wifi network ... so in theory I could use that and do the same (yes, my seat has a standard 110 outlet) ... that'll be for the next time around!
