    hi, the problem could be that the MAC address is hardcoded in to the card so it will always have the original address when you check the card. the way it is changed is by spoofing it in the registry, so it is really changed. there maybe some more here -

    i'm not familiar with windows, so sorry if i misunderstand the problem!
