Technitium MAC Address Changer 6.0.5
Find out more about your network card's MAC address - and change it to something else

Technitium MAC Address Changer is a tool which provides useful information on your network adapters, and enables you to change their MAC addresses to something else.

Why bother? A utility like this can help to improve your privacy when accessing public networks on a laptop, for example (if your MAC address is always changing then you'll appear to be different systems). It can be useful for testing network security, and may have some troubleshooting applications, too.

At a minimum, you can use Technitium MAC Address Changer to find out more about a particular network adapter. Just choose it from the list and you'll see its name, hardware ID, current MAC address and who that belongs to (the card manufacturer, in other words), connection speed, and even a graph showing current network traffic.

And in a click or two you can now also change an adapter's IP address, gateway, DNS server and more.

If you want to change an adapter's MAC address, though, there's the option to create one randomly, enter a particular address of your own, or even choose one from the program's extensive list. The new address can be just for this session, or be made persistent (so it'll survive a reboot), and if you've finished testing then you're able to restore the original address with a click.

There are a few complications involved here which means this process won't always be successful. It worked for us, though, and there is an option you can apply if you have problems (click "Why" next to "Use '02' as first octet of MAC address), so if you need to engage in this kind of advanced network tweakery then Technitium MAC Address Changer is a good place to start.

Version 6.0.5:

- Fixes minor bugs including an error that occurs while updating OUI file into local database from IEEE.ORG.

Verdict:

An easy-to-use tool for reporting and changing your network adapter's MAC addresses

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
