am using macbook aluminium 2008 with leopard 10.5.8,2 ghz intel core 2 duo,2gb 1067 mhz ddr3,320 hard drive.
in my company,for months i have asked the I.T specialist to network my macbook to the company's internet network,but he's not familiar with mac os......recently,he told me that based on his inquiry that he's having issue's which can be resolved by changing mac address, and this has been confirmed by three more I.T specialist,now they have installed an application called 'macdaddy' to enable them do the job but still the problem continue.they confirm that the 'macdaddy' was only able to change en0-ethernet adopter and also works on en1-airport adopter but cannot work on en2 even using terminal cmds.
i really dont want to switch to window(microsoft),because i believe this problem can easily be solve by someone with knowledge about mac os.......pls i really need yur assistance.thanks

Your MacBook's en0 port is the wired ethernet port.
Your MacBook's en1 port is the AirPort wireless networking (Wi-Fi).

MacBooks don't have an en2 port! This is not a defect, it just means that it doesn't have two wired ethernet ports. If you connect via wireless, change the en1 MAC address. If you connect via wired, change the en0 MAC address. If your IT department still suggests you change the en2 MAC address, replace your IT department. ;-)
