He can connect through USB. There are many proggy on net by which you can clone faked mac address. Search somthing for that. It worked fine but only change the mac of your lan, don't change the wan mac or you will face trouble in connecting to BB.

You can just change your MAC address in Win XP without any extra software.Its there somewhere when you right click on the LAN card properties.

Double click on connection icon in sys try and click on disable. Alternately go to Network Connections through Control Panel, right click on ur lan card and choose disable.

thats the solution.....go into the properties for the lan card, change the address with 6 byte hex mac address and reconnect..easy as pie.
