    :link: Link-Layer MAC spoofing GUI for macOS

    Project mention: My mom unplugged the wifi router so I can focus on my online classes. | reddit.com/r/teenagers | 2021-04-24

    Are you on Mac, Windows, Linux, or something else? If you're on Mac, there's an open source app I use. If you're on Windows, there are some tutorials you can follow to do it without installing anything (I've tried it on Windows once a long time ago, so I'm not really sure if it still works). If you're on Linux, there are also tutorials, though I've never tried them before so I'm not sure if they work. Also, to avoid suspicion, you may want to change your netBIOS/localhost name (actually, I'm not sure if they're the same thing, but changing either seems to have the same result since its visible when logged into your router settings. You can do it via Settings or Terminal for Mac and there are probably some tutorials for Windows and Linux.)
