Is there any way to change the physical address of the Microsoft Loopback Adapter?
Yes, it can be done. View the Properties of your Loopback Adapter. With the General tab of the Properties dialog selected, click the Configure button. Select the Advanced tab. Select Network Address under the Property drop-list, and enter a new MAC address in the Value field. Use the format, '02-02-02-02-02-02'. Click OK until all dialogs are closed.
