Sorry, but that's against the rules here. If you feel like you were banned from the game unjustly, take it up with the game admins. Otherwise, what you're proposing could technically be considered hacking, and thus there could be legal consequences for anyone who helps you.

And just to add, you cannot change the MAC address as it's hardwired into the NIC. The IP address is assigned by your ISP. They won't change it. The IP address you changed in the router is the router assigned IP address for your NIC, not your IP address assigned by your ISP.

In short, you're SOL.

Actually, some network cards DO allow you to change the MAC address, but it's not recommended in any way. The MAC address is supposed to be unique, so if you go tinkering with it, that may not be the case and problems arise.

I know back in college some people used this to get around campus IT imposed throttling for bandwidth abusers. It was a temporary solution at best.
