Does anyone know how to change the WiFi MAC address??

I think it's hardcoded to the card, being as it's a unique code generated from the manufacturer, the model, and unique identifier.  Why would you want to?

 

Read about MAC (Media Access Control) addresses and their breakdown here

I have recently bought an Apple iTouch - they come with an unlimited WiFi access service with one of the largest providers of hotspots...

Spoofing the MAC address will allow me to use both the devices on the same unlimited service.

It would suprise me if it were hardcoded - very few manufacuturers hardcode them these days but hopefully someone out there will have a definitive answer.

While spoofing your MAC address is not strictly illegal, the reasoning behind you wanting to do it is.  You will be breaking the law by using the airtime given for the iTouch.  Because of this I will have to lock the thread and tell you that you won't find out on this forum how to do it.
