    Is it easy to pretty much "spoof" the mac address? I read a tutorial and it seemed pretty straight forward. Could someone tell me a little more in depth the benefits and disadvantages of doing it (besides making your computer ID unknown) i.e. - untraceable, might not be able to connect to certain sites, etc

    By spoofing, can I just make up a random alphanumeric? I read on a tutorial that you just remove the hyphens. How often would I need to keep changing the mac address or should I keep rotating with random ones?

    The reason why I ask is, I believe my adsense account was banned when they got my mac address. That's really the only way I can think of why they denied my appeal.
