I use a website that tracks mac / ip address of users. You are suppose to only use one login for accessing the site. I would like to have a second account, so I tried to connect using an anonymous website but it didn't work. Is there another method I can use to spoof the MAC/IP address of the cable modem? Thanks.

Depends on the site you are working with (I have seen this with stock trading) they could be doing MAC checks via the browser in combination with IP checking to that account. In the past, ultimately (for the trading scenario) they needed multiple internet connections, so we had multiple different static IP's to work with, easy to get multiple accounts. But if you have one internet connection, you can request a block of IP's and route traffic over specific IP's (usually multiple LAN's as well).

But to determine "how" to make this work, we would need to know what the web server / company is doing authentication on the account.

Spoofing the MAC address with do nothing as your MAC address has nothing at all to do with the Internet. It is only used internally on your LAN.

The web site will be tracking you public IP address and there is nothing you can do to change that as it allocated by your ISP.

You may be able to log in with each account individually but not both simultaneously. If this the case then there will probably be a very good reason for it. Cheating comes to mind.

thanks for the info. in this case it is not about cheating, it would be too long to explain why I need to do this. I am using a cable modem (not a static assigned address), doesn't that change from time to time?

It does as does most other peoples. That's is why I said you be able to log individually but not both simultaneously as both log in will have the same IP address..

Websites typically use multiple undisclosed methods of detecting a user with more than one account. It is not just the IP address. Many websites will ban users with multiple accounts. Contact the website for a possible solution that stays within the rules.

I've been trying to think of a valid reason for having multiple IDs on a website when the owner of that site explicitly forbids it. I give up; I can't think of a valid reason.
