  2. I am having an issue when I change my mac address, so I figured I might ask it here. Whenever I spoof my mac address, I become unable to connect to any network. I even try to nearly copy my original mac address, and only changing the last digit, but when I did that, the 02 octet thing came up. So for whatever reason, I can't connect to any wifi networks after changing my mac address (I have tried restarting) so do you have any advice on how to fix this?

    1. I am unable to reproduce the issue you are facing. I will keep testing it on multiple laptops to check it.

  3. Hi,
    Can you add a timer which automatically change the MAC address randomly? this will help to reduce sniffing on my network by making the hacker busy (scan and sniff again the victim) :)

    1. Randomly changing MAC address will require resetting your network adapter. This means you will keep losing network connectivity at those times. Any download during that period would be affected. I don't think this is desirable and to have such feature.

  5. I just installed this on my 64bit Win7 machine. I keep getting the same error despite what I do to fix it:

    Error: (339) Component 'MSCOMCTL.OCX' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid

    I've tried to register the file with regsvr32 mscomctl.ocx in cmd. I've given a success message but then continue to get the error.
    I've tried deleting the file and reinstalling the program. I can see in the installer that it's adding the file, and I can find it in the file system, but I continue to get the error.

    Do you have any other ideas on how to fix this?

    1. Just uninstall TMAC, delete the MSCOMCTL.OCX file and then reinstall.

    1. You dont have to do any settings to use TMAC on your computer. To see the network traffic data chart, select the specific network adapter from the list above that you wish to see (i.e. Wifi or Ethernet adapter)

  7. Hello Shreyas!
    Thank you for you response to my question.
    I understand above suggestion, I have done any changes, but My goal is keeping diferent IP address change, the same reason everybody love using yore software.
    I haven't see any changes with network, by using JDownloader 2 Beta.
    Auto-Reconnection fails even when I run you're software. w/ administrator rights!
    I have try to Google to see what setting's or Information its out there but not luck. 2nd Question- How compatible its these software with JDownloder 2 Beta?
    Yes I have try using F5.

    thanks again

    1. If TMAC is changing the mac address and you are able to access internet then its working as desired. There is no other compatibility issue with any other software.

    1. The file format of the OUI file hosted by IEEE has changed slightly. This issue will be resolved with a new update for TMAC.

  12. It would be possible that the program changes the mac the only automatically when it detects that there is no internet connection

    1. Currently its not possible to auto detect and change the MAC address. You can however add command line to change MAC address to random in your computer's startup section so that a new MAC address is available when the computer reboots. I will put this as feature request and it will be added in next release.

  13. Thank you, if it may be possible that the next version Autodetect serious ok

  14. Hi Shreyas.
    First all, thanks for your program, it's really good and it work really fine. I'm a curious person, and I tried to understand how the application works, but I didn't achieve it. So, could you send me an e-mail explaining me what to change into the windows register to change the MAC?. If it is not possible, it doesn't matter!, Thanks anyway. liebro1@hotmail.com
    Happy new year!

    1. Your ISP may be using MAC address to authenticate users. Many cable internet providers do this. Check with your ISP.
