The Targus Clone MAC Address Utility is configured to work with these Microsoft operating systems: Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 (RS1 Build 14393). It runs as a service which automatically replaces (spoofs, clones) a MAC address of any connected Targus Giga Ethernet network adapter with the MAC address of one of the built-in (Wired Ethernet, Wireless Ethernet, Bluetooth) network adapters from a Windows PC. The Targus Clone MAC Address Utility ensures selective access to network resources restricted by MAC address filtering.
