hi,

this is very unusual but


1.run cmd in search bar to get command prompt, then getmac, this will display mac address

2. run ncpa.cpl in the search bar

there you will see the network adapters installed

go to the wireless card you have, then the properties of the card, you will find a field called "network address",

if it has a value typed in, it's been changed

Iron Geek has on his site many ways to use tools to essentially do the same

Do you Intend to find users in your network that are changing Mac address?
